HC Deb 12 March 1936 vol 309 cc2297-8
85. Mr. W. ASTOR

asked the Minister of Transport whether a detailed inquiry was made by his Department into the possibility of carrying the new arterial road through Fulham over the District Railway; and, if so, by how much did the cost of this scheme differ from the approved scheme when allowance for the compensation to be paid to property owners had been taken into account?

Captain HUDSON

As the matter is now before a Committee of the House, I do not think it would be proper for me to make any statement at this stage, beyond what my right hon. Friend said in answer to a question by the hon. Member for South Kensington (Sir W. Davison) on 19th February.


Will the figures be put before the Committee by the Minister of Transport?

Captain HUDSON

The Committee will certainly go into all aspects of the matter.
