§ Sir P. GOFF
asked the Home Secretary by whose authority the traffic has been diverted to the south side of Parliament Square; if he is aware of the great inconvenience to Members caused thereby; and whether it is in contravention of the Sessional Orders of the House of Commons?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
I have been asked to reply to this question. The alterations in traffic control at Parliament Square are being carried out on the recommendation of the Advisory Committee on London traffic. It is realised that the change may cause temporary inconvenience to Members, but it is hoped that this will be accepted in view of the improvement in general traffic facilities which is anticipated as a result of the experiment.
