§ Mr. Goldie
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that compulsory and request omnibus stops are being 1541W placed throughout the Metropolitan area by the London Passenger Transport Board without any reference to the wishes or convenience of the occupants of residential and business premises adjacent thereto; and whether he will take steps to ensure that in future no such omnibus stops are so placed until the wishes of the occupiers of such adjacent premises have been ascertained?
§ Mr. Burgin
The "Compulsory" and "By Request" stops now being placed throughout the Metropolitan area are part of the scheme to provide fixed stopping places and have been approved by me after consultation with the local authority concerned, the police and the board. Any representations made by frontagers receive the fullest consideration. The hon. Member will appreciate that traffic and other over-riding considerations do not always permit of effect being given to those representations.
