HC Deb 15 February 1927 vol 202 cc744-5

(for Mr. CAMPBELL) asked the Minister of. Transport if he can now state what action it is proposed to take in connection with the recommendations of the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee?

Colonel ASHLEY

I understand that my hon. Friend refers to the recommendations contained in the Reports of the London Traffic Advisory Committee on Travelling Facilities in North and North-East London, and in East London. These two Reports have been published, and the report on the more recent Inquiry into travelling facilities in South-East London is with the printers, and will, I hope, be available very shortly. As I explained on the 10th February, in answer to a question from the hon. and gallant Member for Enfield (Colonel Applin), these Reports are under my consideration, but I am not at present in a position to make my statement in the matter.


Will my right hon. Friend consider the setting up of a financial committee to go into the whole position?

Colonel ASHLEY

I do not think that is the best course.
