HC Deb 11 November 1964 vol 701 cc69-70W
67. Mrs. Butler

asked the Minister of Transport what plans the London Transport Board has for the provision of further car-parking facilities at underground stations on the new Victoria line.

Mr. T. Fraser

The London Transport Board tells me that, in conjunction with the Eastern Region of British Railways, it is planning increases in the existing parking facilities at Walthamstow (Hoe Street) and Tottenham (Hale) and is exploring the possibility of a multistorey car park at Blackhorse Road.

Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will make a statement on the progress of the new Victoria tube rail project; it he will explain the nature and causes of the difficulties currently being experienced; and what the estimated increase in the total cost is likely to be as a result of those difficulties.

Mr. T. Fraser

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answer given today to my hon. Friend the Member for Brixton (Mr. Lipton) and the hon. Member for Chigwell (Mr. Biggs-Davison).
