HC Deb 23 January 1962 vol 652 cc6-7
7. Sir Richard Pilkington

asked the Minister of Works what improvements he intends to make at the Alexandra Gate of Hyde Park, near the Albert Memorial, in order to relieve traffic congestion.

Lord John Hope

None, Sir, at present.

Sir Richard Pilkington

Is my right hon. Friend aware that this is one of the worst bottlenecks in London at present? Is there not a good deal of room for a roundabout to be put there, and will he look at this problem, which has been outstanding for a long time?

Lord John Hope

I am aware that my hon. Friend and others have given considerable thought to this problem, but I think he would agree that it is better now to wait until the Park Lane scheme comes into operation, as that may be very relevant to what we do there.
