HC Deb 29 April 1966 vol 727 c65W
Mr. Iremonger

asked the Minister of Transport if she will so regulate east-bound traffic using Eastern Avenue as to ensure that heavy lorries are prevented from turning into Oaks Lane, Ilford, where they cause danger and nuisance to residents and young children and elderly people; and what discussions she has had with the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis and the Redbridge Borough Council about this problem.

Mr. Swingler

We have no evidence that heavy lorries turning into Oaks Lane are creating conditions on Eastern Avenue that would justify me in prohibiting such turns. The behaviour of lorries on Oaks Lane is a matter for the Redbridge Borough Council and the Greater London Council as traffic authority. I have drawn the points raised to the attention of the Greater London Council.
