§ 28. Captain Pilkington
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many alternative plans for easing traffic at Marble Arch and Hyde Park Corner are now being considered; when consideration of these plans started; and when a decision is likely to be made and implemented.
§ Mr. Watkinson
To get the best solution of the traffic problem at these points and at the same time do the least harm to amenity has entailed consideration of all the possible traffic engineering methods, and that is why the matter has been under active consideration since the beginning of last year. I cannot say yet when I shall be able to announce a final decision, but it will be as soon as possible in view of the importance I attach to the need for improving traffic conditions.
