We have received no proposals from Middlesex County Council, which is the highway authority, for signal control at this junction, and I understand that it does not think traffic signals are likely to prove a satisfactory solution. It has, however, a scheme for a roundabout, to be put in hand when funds are available.
Would not my hon. Friend agree that roundabouts eventually get so clogged with traffic that they have to be replaced by traffic lights in any road where there is great congestion of traffic? Will he have this matter investigated to see whether traffic lights can be installed as they are just outside Buckingham Palace at the Buckingham Palace Road-Birdcage Walk junction, where a similar problem arises?
