HC Deb 21 November 1972 vol 846 c369W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals have been submitted to him by the Greater London Council for the widening of Charing Cross Road; what loss of residential accommodation would be involved; and what loss of retail premises, especially bookshops.

Mr. Peyton

A proposal for widening Charing Cross Road is included in the GLC's proposed comprehensive development area for the Covent Garden area, which is now being considered in the light of the inspector's report. The proposals do not specifically indicate what loss of residential accommodation and other premises would be involved.
