§ Mrs. Thatcher
asked the Minister of Transport, whether, in view of the large number of objections made to the draft Section 9 order under the Highways Act, 1959, she will now agree to hold a public inquiry into the proposed road widening scheme for the A1 road through Hampstead Garden Suburb.
§ Mr. Swingler
My right hon. Friend is still considering the representations made in connection with the draft Order, which relates to those side roads affected by the improvement of Trunk Road A1. Orders under Section 7 or 9 of the Highways Act, 1959, are not required in respect of the widening of the trunk road itself.
