asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the success of the experimental one-way street arrange ments, he will further extend this scheme in London.

Yes. Tottenham Court Road-Gower Street has now been made one-way indefinitely. Experimental schemes at Hackney (near Victoria Park) and Deptford (at the Marquis of Granby) have begun and are going well. Baker Street-Gloucester Place is to start soon. So, as I have just announced, is a fresh experiment in Piccadilly-Pall Mall. Oxford Street and some other schemes are being discussed with councils. Still more schemes are being worked out.
