HC Deb 15 February 1940 vol 357 c990W
Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the danger to life and inconvenience to traffic resultant from the fact that the widening of High Street, Stratford, is still uncompleted; and whether he will receive a deputation of the Members of Parliament for the county borough of West Ham, attended by the officers of the borough, in order that he can be furnished with direct evidence as to the vital character of this much needed improvement?

Captain Wallace

I am aware of the advantages attaching to the scheme for the widening of High Street, Stratford, but, as at present advised, I am afraid that I cannot see any grounds for altering the decision given in reply to the hon. Member's Question of 6th December last. Nevertheless, if the hon. Members concerned still wish to discuss the matter, I will certainly arrange to receive the deputation suggested by the hon. Member.
