§ Mr. Mellish
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that London Transport Executives' omnibuses are scheduled to run at 8¼ miles per hour because of traffic congestion; and, in view of the financial saving which would result if omnibuses were scheduled to run at 10 miles per hour, what steps he is taking to relieve the congestion.
§ Mr. Marples
I am fully aware of the need, in the joint interests of economy and efficiency, to relieve traffic congestion. As I informed the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) on 3rd February, I hope to announce my plans in the near future.
