HC Deb 18 December 1963 vol 686 cc225-6W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Minister of Transport whether the proposal to extend the Victoria Line from Waltham-stow, Hoe Street, to South Woodford or Woodford, in order further to relieve congestion on the Central Line, is being considered by the Passenger Transport Planning Committee for London; and when he expects to be in a position to make a statement thereon.

Mr. Marples

A Passenger Transport Planning Committee for London has been set up by the British Railways Board and the London Transport Board to formulate long-term plans for public passenger transport in the London area. I understand that the proposal to which my hon. Friend refers is one of several under consideration by the Committee, which will in due course report to the Boards. I would not expect to make a statement on the proposal before it was referred to me by the London Transport Board.
