§ 24. Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Minister of Transport what major road 8 developments are planned which will affect the constituency of the hon. Member for Putney; and to what extent they will involve the destruction of houses or blighting of amenities.
Mr. Bob Brown
The Greater London Council's plans for London's primary road network include sections of Ring-ways 1 and 2 in this area. It states that these routes are being planned so as to have the minimum effect on property and amenities.
§ Mr. Jenkins
Is my hon. Friend aware that changes appear to be taking place all the time in the G.L.C. plans? Has the G.L.C. kept the Ministry of Transport in touch with precisely what its present programme is? Will my hon. Friend encourage the G.L.C. to make up its mind and let everybody know where it stands?
Yes, Sir. The proposals form part of the Greater London Development Plan, which is due to be submitted to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government by 31st July.
Subject to the Greater London Development Plan public inquiry findings, Ringway 2—the "C" ring—is unlikely to start before the mid-1970s.
