asked the Minister of Transport if he will now convert the experimental one-way system in Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street into a permanent scheme, with such minor modifications as may be necessary; and if he will give an assurance that the one-way scheme will not prejudice the construction of the Euston Road underpass already approved.
This scheme is due to continue on an experimental basis up to the end of October. I shall decide well before then whether to make it permanent. So far it has gone well. If it is made permanent the construction of the Euston Road underpass will not be affected.
