HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 c125W
92. Mr. Lipton

asked the Minister of Transport if he will investigate the reasons for the traffic jam in the West End of London during the evening rush hour on 10th July.

Mr. Bob Brown

No. The control of traffic in London is primarily the responsibility of the police and the Greater London Council. I am advised that the congestion on the day in question was caused by an exceptional combination of circumstances.
