§ Mr. MILLS
asked the Minister of Transport if he has received any representations for the construction of a riverside road south of the Thames starting from Plumstead Bridge in the Woolwich area and continuing through the areas of Abbey Wood, Belvedere, Erith, Crayford, and Dartford; and, if not, will he cause inquiries to be made into its practical value as a main line of communication?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I have not received any official application in respect of the construction of a riverside road south of the River Thames, as described by my hon. Friend. I am, however, aware that the West Kent Regional Town Planning Committee suggested such a. road in their report, and the question of providing for its ultimate construction will doubtless be considered in connection with any townplanning schemes which may be prepared by the local authorities through whose areas the road would pass. I am advised that at present it could not be regarded as a main line of communication.
