asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what development has taken place since 1937 which is inconsistent with any recommendation of the Bressey Report.

The development plans for the County of London and adjacent counties were much influenced by the proposals of the Bressey Report. I do not think that any major development has taken place which is inconsistent with those proposals.

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what the cost would be today of implementing the recommendations of the Bressey Report in respect of Route No. 1, East-West connection, and Route No. 48, Harrow Road improvement.

I have no up-to-date estimate of the cost of carrying out these recommendations of the Bressey Report, but the proposals in the County of London Development Plan, 1951, which correspond to such parts of Route No. 1 in the Bressey Report as are included in the 20-year programme of that plan were at the time the plan was prepared estimated to cost about £17 million. The proposals in the Plan for improving the Harrow Road are not comparable with those for Route No. 48 in the Bressey Report.
