HC Deb 06 February 1963 vol 671 c68W
79. Mr. Hunter

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the nuisances which obtain on the verges of the Great South-West Road immediately adjoining London (Heathrow) Airport, caused by persons stopping to watch the aircraft and parking their cars and other vehicles on the verges, and also by refreshment vans which are now established there; what consideration he has given to representations from the Middlesex County Council and the London (Heathrow) Airport Standing Consultative Committee about these nuisances; and whether he will take steps to put an end to them.

Mr. Hay

My right hon. Friend has considered the representations made to him. He intends to designate this stretch of road a clearway as soon as the necessary bus draw-ins are constructed. He will at the same time prohibit the selling of goods from vehicles standing on the verges of the road. I hope this will eliminate the greater part of the nuisance.
