HC Deb 10 April 1952 vol 498 cc271-2W
70. Sir H. Williams

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the taxi-cab fare from Palace Yard to Victoria Station is 1s. 9d. and the fare from Victoria Station to Palace Yard is 2s. 3d because Terminus Place is closed to west to east traffic; and if he will ask the Commissioner of Police to review this arrangement.

Mr. Braithwaite

Delays due to congestion might increase both fares. The present experimental arrangements in Terminus Place have been reviewed by the police and the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee. They have improved general traffic conditions here and, on the Committee's advice, my hon. Friend proposes, after advertisement, to make the arrangements permanent by regulations.
