HC Deb 03 December 1951 vol 494 c2028
75. Mr. Ronald Russell

asked the Minister of Transport when he expects that all wood-paving will be removed from the roads of central London and replaced by a less slippery surface.

The Minister of Transport (Mr. John Maclay)

Highway authorities are replacing wood-paving with non-skid material as and when resurfacing is necessary. I cannot say how long this will take.

Mr. Mikardo

Can the right hon. Gentleman get the appropriate authority to have a particular look at Lisson Grove, Marylebone, which is increasingly being used as a motor road as an alternative to the Edgware Road, and which in wet weather is literally a death trap?

Mr. Maclay

The hon. Member's supplementary will be duly noted.
