HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 c1330W
Mr. Benjamin Smith

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the presence of horse-drawn traffic in the Blackwall and Rotherhithe tunnels is a frequent source of great delay to traffic passing through them; and whether the Ministry is considering any method of dealing with this obstacle to the free movement of traffic?

Captain Wallace

I am about to make Regulations for Blackwall Tunnel prohibiting the passage of slow-moving vehicles, including horse-drawn vehicles, during certain hours of the day. When the effect of the Regulations is ascertained, the desirability of their extension to Rotherhithe Tunnel will be considered.
