HC Deb 16 June 1925 vol 185 cc270-1
35. Colonel BURTON

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the congested state of traffic traversing London from east to west and vice versa, he has considered the advisability of setting up a Committee to consider the question of diverting the River Thames to the south in a line from a convenient point in western London to the vicinity of Tower Bridge in order that the present bed of the river might be converted into a highway for vehicular traffic?

Colonel ASHLEY

No, Sir.
