§ 39. Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will use the opportunity afforded by the demolition of the old Geo. logical Museum in Jermyn Street of conferring with the local authorities with a view to a. policy of widening the street on the termination of other leases in Jermyn Street?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The local authorities have been consulted, but by reason of the heavy cost which would be in- 1958 volved, and of the already restricted building depths, they are not prepared to undertake the widening of Jermyn Street.
