§ Mr. Wheeler
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has con- 553W Greater London Council concerning the relocation of Victoria Gate; if there are other studies under consideration, and if so, at what cost; and when he proposes
§ Mr. Monro
I have considered a proposal made by the Westminster city council that a new entrance for vehicles should be created in Hyde Park to replace Victoria Gate. Alternative road layouts have also been prepared by the council, which has borne the cost of all the design work; these are currently under discussion between the Department and the council. When these discussions are complete I will be in a position to decide if any action is appropriate.
