§ Lieut.-Colonel MASON
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the grave congestion of traffic at the junction of Hart Street and Shaftesbury Avenue with New Oxford Street; and, in view of the convenient arrangement of bye-streets at this point, will he cause an experiment to be made with one-way traffic?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
The proposal has already been considered by the London Traffic Advisory Committee, and I understand their view to be that the bye-streets at this point are not in fact convenient for the trial of a "one-way" traffic scheme. Traffic conditions from the Marble Arch through Oxford Street, Holborn and High Holborn are receiving constant investigation, and I trust that ultimately it will be found practicable to effect improvements.
