HC Deb 14 July 1952 vol 503 c1800
39. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce one-way working in Strutton Ground, Westminster, in view of the narrowness of this street and the market stalls erected in the roadway.

Mr. Braithwaite

No, Sir. This is a short street and the vehicular traffic is light and purely local.

Mr. Russell

Would not my hon. Friend agree that it is not only a question of the volume of traffic but its speed and convenience, and would he have a look at the matter again?

Mr. Braithwaite

It has already been looked at very thoroughly. The vehicular traffic is light. It is the pedestrian traffic which is heavy.
