HC Deb 14 July 1952 vol 503 cc1800-1
41. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce one-way working in Queen Anne's Gate, Westminster, in view of the narrowness of this thoroughfare, especially the gateway itself.

Mr. Braithwaite

No, Sir. Such small inconvenience as may be experienced at present would not in my view justify this restriction.

Mr. Russell

Can my hon. Friend say why there is some reluctance to introduce one-way streets? What is the objection or difficulty?

Mr. Braithwaite

The objection is to Queen Anne's Gate as a one-way street. It would mean a long detour and might cause further difficulty in Storey's Gate.

Mr. Langford-Holt

Is this street to be included in the Minister's unilateral parking proposals?
