The necessary signs have been or are now being erected by all the Metropolitan boroughs concerned, with one exception.

Can my right hon. Friend say which is the exception?

In view of the fact that some of these signs direct traffic to a ring road which includes the bottleneck of Euston Road, will the right hon. Gentleman see that something is done at the earliest opportunity to remove that bottleneck?

The bottleneck was there before the signs, but I agree that its removal would be an improvement.
