HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc924-5W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Minister of Transport what steps are being taken to improve access to and egress from the London docks, and to relieve the congestion therein, which forms at present so great an obstacle to reviving trade?


The question of the improvement of the access to and egress from London Docks will be considered by the Advisory Committee which is being appointed to advise and assist the Ministry of Transport in connection with London baffle. All possible steps are being taken to maintain the flow of traffic through the London Docks, and no doubt the hon. Member is aware of the arrangement under which Government-owned lorries are now working at those docks in order to relieve congestion.
