HC Deb 07 December 1950 vol 482 cc70-1W
28. Sir H. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been called to an illegal police "No Entry" notice in Howick Place, Westminister; and if he will take steps to have it removed.

Mr. Ede

This sign was introduced experimentally by the police after consultation with the Ministry of Transport and the Westminister City Council, to determine whether one-way working in this street would improve traffic conditions there. As a result of the experiment, traffic conditions in Howick Place are much improved and I understand that the Minister of Transport has under consideration the question whether one-way working should be made permanent.
