§ 67. Mr. Hastings asked the Minister of Works whether he will take steps to relieve the congestion at Hyde Park Corner by providing for a double line of traffic for vehicles leaving the park, such as already exists for vehicles entering it.
§ The Minister of Works (Mr. Nigel Birch)
Proposals are under consideration for major improvements at Hyde Park Corner in connection with the new Park Lane scheme, but I am not in a position to make any statement about this at present.
§ Mr. Hastings
Is it not very undesirable that it should be twice as easy to get into the park as it is to get out of it?
§ Mr. Langford-Holt
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Minister of Transport said that this matter was now being considered by the Royal Fine Art Commission? Can he say when a reply from that Commission may be expected?
