asked the Minister of Transport what stage he has reached in working out detailed proposals with regard to the traffic diversion from Oxford Street; and whether they have yet been submitted for criticism and consideration to the Westminster City Council.

I am considering the many comments, including Westminster City Council's, which I have received on the outline proposals announced last August. I am also considering other important aspects, such as possible alternative routes for buses. I shall certainly consult the Westminster City Council again and also the other interests concerned.

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has studied the technical report prepared for the committee of residents concerning his outline proposals for the diversion of east-bound traffic from Oxford Street to Upper Brook Street, Brook Street and Grosvenor Square; and whether he is now prepared to receive representations from that committee.

The report, which is a detailed one, is still being studied. When my study is complete, I shall be getting in touch with the committee.
