HC Deb 23 June 1925 vol 185 c1286
34. Captain GARRO-JONES

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has considered any proposal to construct an underground road from Berkeley Square to the Mall, or to construct any underground road scheme in any other part of London; and, if so, what is the nature of the proposal and his conclusion, if any, with regard to it?

Colonel ASHLEY

The suggested subway for road vehicles between Berkeley Square and the Mall is still under consideration by the London Traffic Advisory Committee, but I understand they consider that, on traffic grounds, other important schemes which they now have under consideration should take priority. They do not, therefore, propose to report on the Berkeley Square subway until they have dealt with these other schemes, which they consider of greater urgency. I am not at present considering any definite proposals for the construction of any other underground roads.
