§ Sir W. Davison
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the continuing congestion of traffic at Victoria Gate, Hyde Park; will he inform the House of the reasons as to why the necessary improvements, which have been agreed to by all the bodies concerned for many months past, have not yet been commenced; who is responsible for the delay; what representations have been made to the London County Council in the matter; and when it is proposed that a start will be made?
§ Mr. Burgin
I regret that general agreement has not yet been reached as to the works to be undertaken at Victoria Gate, Hyde Park. The London County Council were unfortunately unable to agree the scheme prepared by my Department. An alternative proposal has been submitted by them and negotiations are still proceeding between my officers and those of the council for the purpose of evolving a scheme which will be acceptable to all parties concerned.
