HC Deb 19 February 1924 vol 169 c1562W
Viscount CURZON

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the grave and rapidly increasing congestion of London traffic, His Majesty's Government propose to take steps to deal with it?


asked the Minister of Transport whether he can given an undertaking to introduce a Traffic Bill for London before the opening of the British Empire Exhibition?


I would refer the Noble Lord to the answer which the Prime Minister gave yesterday to the hon. and gallant Member for Chatham (Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon).


asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the threatened pulling up again of Oxford Circus, he will introduce legislation to give himself power to prohibit such costly and inconvenient action by the Metropolitan Water Board in time to prevent such an example of the lack of co-ordination of the authorities who have powers over London streets?


I understand that the proposed alterations in the gas and water mains in Oxford Circus are only required in order to allow of improvements in the Central London Tube Station which are being undertaken solely in the interest of London traffic.
