§ Lieut. - Colonel JAMES
asked the Minister of Transport when the Western Road will be open for traffic and the general public be afforded the same facilities as those granted during Ascot week to a limited section of racegoers?
§ Mr. GOSLING
Sections of the Great West Road were opened so as to make a through road for traffic, in order to relieve the pressure on the western exits from London during Ascot week. These sections were incomplete, and were afterwards closed, but I hope they will be opened again to traffic in a few weeks' time.
