HC Deb 17 July 1957 vol 573 cc117-8W
48. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what authorities he co-ordinates in discharging his special responsibilities for London traffic and what are their respective spheres of responsibility.

Mr. Nugent

The principal authorities with responsibilities affecting traffic in London are, in addition to my right hon. Friend, the police, the Metropolitan boroughs and the London County Council but other bodies, such as the London Transport Executive and the organisations representing vehicle interests are intimately concerned. There is also the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee representative of all these interests which we have a statutory obligation to consult before carrying out the duties laid on us by the London Traffic Act, 1924.
