§ 54. Captain BRASS
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the difficulty pedestrians have in remembering the direction of the traffic in one-way streets, he will consider having a series of small white arrows painted on the streets close to and on each side of the refuges where the bulk of the pedestrians cross, so as to remind them that traffic passes in the same direction on each side of the refuge?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
The London Traffic Advisory Committee have for some time been giving special consideration to the question of what steps could usefully be taken to make the streets safer for pedestrians, and in particular to the question whether any arangements could be adopted for facilitating the crossing of one-way streets by pedestrians. I am awaiting their Report on the whole question. I will ask the Committee to consider, if they have not already done so, the suggestion mad by my hon. and gallant Friend.
§ Colonel DAY
Will the right hon. Gentleman also consider asking the Committee to consider the possibility of having these signs illuminated at night time?
§ Colonel DAY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in some places the white arrows are covered over with glass and electric lights are underneath them. [Interruption.] On a point of Order. May I ask whether it is right for an hon. Member on the other side of the House to say that an hon. Member on this side ought to be "covered over with arrows."
