§ 37. Mr. Stallard
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement about the latest proposals concerning the North Cross route motorway, in particular its effect on the London Borough of Camden.
§ Mr. Graham Page
No, Sir. Proposals for this route are the responsibility of the Greater London Council as highway authority.
§ Mr. Stallard
Will the Minister bear in mind that there is considerable unrest and anxiety among thousands of residents and traders all along this route about the proposals? Is the hon. Gentleman aware that it has been estimated that, if these proposals are accepted, together with council building programmes, at least 30,000 jobs will disappear in the London borough of Camden alone? Will the Minister take this into consideration and advise his friends on the G.L.C. of these facts?
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
Will my hon. Friend accept that on this matter at least both political parties in the London Borough of Camden are united in not wanting this montrous route?
