asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce an electric computer to help work out the flow of traffic in London.

An electric computer will be used to analyse data on traffic flow for the comprehensive survey of London's traffic now being made by consultants on behalf of my Department and the London County Council.I am also investigating, with the Road Research Laboratory, the possibility of using a computer for the continuous processing of traffic data to permit the coordinated control of traffic over large areas.
