§ Dr. O'DONOVAN
asked the Minister of Transport whether the route for a new tube through East London to Ilford is finally chosen; and have the Stepney borough council been consulted by his department in this matter?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The route of the proposed new tube railway to which my hon. Friend refers has not yet been finally decided. It will be necessary for the London Passenger Transport Board to obtain the authority of Parliament for the construction of the railway.
