HC Deb 19 December 1932 vol 273 c748
56. Major THOMAS

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the increasing danger to pedestrians and traffic in the main squares in London; and whether he will take steps to establish one-way traffic round these squares?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

The question of introducing "one-way" traffic working around all the main squares in London has been considered, but I am advised by the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee that, in the light of the experience gained, this system should only be introduced where it is likely to effect some definite improvement in the condition of traffic. In many London squares there is comparatively little traffic and no serious difficulties have been experienced.


Will my hon. and gallant Friend consider those squares where there is a great deal of traffic, and not those where there is little traffic?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

That is exactly what we are doing.
