asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is aware that the private road in Palace Gardens, between Bays-water and Kensington, is now being used by heavy military lorries without any bad results, and will he therefore reconsider his decision and open it for light traffic with a view to the saving of petrol and for general economy?

To open the road as a thoroughfare for vehicles of any kind would, I understand, cause traffic difficulties at the junctions with Kensington High Street and Bayswater Road, and, for this and for the other reasons I have previously stated, I see no reason to change the decision already made.
