HC Deb 11 March 1929 vol 226 c809W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has any new proposals for regulating traffic in the small streets surrounding Covent Garden Market, with a view to relieving the congestion there and reducing the waste of time and inconvenience involved?

Colonel ASHLEY

Arrangements are being made for the introduction of one-way working, i.e., from east to west, in Maiden Lane, but I regret that it is not considered practicable, at any rate at the present time, to make any further arrangements of this nature with a view to relieving the congestion in the neighbourhood of Covent Garden Market.
