§ 64. Captain Pilkington
asked the Minister of Works whether, in view of the steadily increasing congestion in London, he will expedite such obvious improvements as proper roundabouts at the south-west and north-west gates in Hyde Park.
§ Mr. Molson
The temporary roundabout at the north-west corner of Hyde Park, near the Victoria Gate, has now been in operation for more than two years, and I am informed that it has greatly eased the traffic problem there. I do not, however, consider that I should be justified in constructing a permanent roundabout either there or at the Alexandra Gate at the south-west corner of the Park until I have been able to observe what effect the proposed Park Lane improvement scheme has on the traffic at these points.
