HC Deb 30 March 1955 vol 539 c362
18. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he has any further statement to make on proposed alterations to Hyde Park Corner.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Not yet, Sir.

Mr. Langford-Holt

In view of the fact that, like my right hon. Friend, I had the advantage, some eight years ago, of seeing a model of the proposed alterations displayed in the Library of the House, may I ask my right hon. Friend when it is proposed that these alterations will be carried out? He will appreciate that the bottleneck which has been created at Hyde Park Corner is a very small one.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I have already indicated to the House my concern about that place, but, as my hon. Friend may have seen from the Press, certain proposals in respect of this matter are now before the Royal Fine Art Commission.
