§ 25. Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the dangers that arise on the arterial road Wanstead to Southend and of the advantage of that portion which has double section; and when the work will be commenced on the other sections of the road, thus making the whole road double-sectioned?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I understand that the Essex County Council have before them proposals for the construction of an additional length of second carriageway upon the London-Southend Road, but they have not yet submitted them to me.
§ Mr. GROVES
Is the Minister aware that this matter has been under consideration for about five years and that this is a very essential route?
