Loop Road

Loop road : No action by MP yet

MITCHAM’S M.P. (Mr. Robert Carr) is unlikely to raise the question of the proposed loop road round Fair Green, Mitcham, in the Home of Commons yet.

But he promised a delegation from the Loop Rood Protest Committee—he met them me Friday – that he would investigate their case.

He said that at the moment the subject of the loop road was mot one which could be raised in the Commons.

Mr. J. Hamilton, chairman of the protest committee, said: “The delegation had a long hearing and discussed all of the loop road and preblems from the residents’ point of view.”
