§ 57. Mr. DUNCAN
asked the Minister of Transport how far the negotiations for widening Notting Hill Gate have progressed; and when it is anticipated that work will begin to relieve the present congestion of traffic?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The London County Council General Powers Bill will provide for the acquisition of the property to enable this improvement to be carried out and subject to the necessary powers being obtained I have promised a grant of 60 per cent. from the Road Fund towards the cost of the scheme.
