HC Deb 29 March 1934 vol 287 c2152W

asked the Minister of Transport whether his officers have re ported upon the fact of the completion of the first portion of the scheme for widening High Street, Stratford; whether he is aware that the net result is a bottleneck inconvenient and dangerous to traffic and pedestrians; and whether, in view of all the circumstances, he will communicate with the West Ham Council authorising the commencement of a further portion of this scheme?


I am advised that the completion of the first portion of this scheme has greatly conduced to the convenience and safety of traffic, but I recognise the desirability of proceeding with further sections and will consider whether, having due regard to the claims of other suspended works throughout the country, I shall be in a position to assist a further section of this improvement.
