§ Sir A. YEO
asked the Minister of Labour if his attention has been drawn to the statement of some of the London mayors that the arterial roads system will not in any way help the London boroughs inside the London area in regard to the unemployed; and what steps he proposes to take to remedy such alleged defects in the scheme?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Yes, Sir. I heard the statement. I was present at the meeting. It is true that the proposed arterial roads in the neighbourhood of London lie mainly on the outer fringe of the London boroughs, but I hope the scheme will be proved of greater assistance in the inner boroughs than has been suggested. However, the point raised by my hon. Friend is now before the Cabinet Committee on Unemployment.
