§ 37. Sir CYRIL COBB
asked the Minister of Transport whether any decision has yet been reached as to the re-opening of the part of Old Quebec Street, W., between Bryanston Street and Oxford Street, now used as a storage for motor vehicles, so that both sides of the street may be used for moving traffic between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd)
I have been asked to reply. I understand that Old Quebec Street is a one-way thoroughfare and is 423 used to a large extent by vehicles belonging to persons who are making short calls at neighbouring buildings. The Oxford Street end has not been closed as a public thoroughfare and no question of its reopening accordingly arises. The difficulties of keeping the neighbourhood free from obstruction by standing vehicles have been explained in reply to previous questions. The police have not relaxed and will not relax their efforts to prevent undue congestion.
