§ 84. Sir G. Fox
asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement on the long-term plans being made to relieve the increasing congestion in the West End; and to what extent the recently adopted short-term policy has helped to reduce the traffic congestion.
§ Mr. Callaghan
Long-term proposals for the relief of traffic congestion in the West End are included in the County of London Plan but it is unlikely that major schemes of this nature can be put in hand in the near future. Meanwhile the immediate measures have had a good effect on the movement of traffic and we shall not hesitate to make further experiments to try and improve matters.
