§ 82. Mr. DUNCAN
asked the Minister of Transport what stage the negotiations have reached in connection with the eastward extension of Western Avenue through North Kensington; and when it is contemplated that they will be completed?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I am informed that the London County Council expect shortly to invite tenders for constructing a road bridge over the railway between Wood Lane and Latimer Road. I am conferring with the county council about the extension of Western Avenue further eastwards, but until agreement has been reached with the authorities concerned, I cannot say when this further extension will be commenced.
§ Mr. DUNCAN
Will the right hon. Gentleman hasten the matter as much as possible because, if there is any considerable delay, it will hold up a very desirable housing improvement scheme in Kensington?
§ Mr. BENJAMIN SMITH
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the scheme submitted to the Ministry some years ago for a road right through to Wanstead?
