§ 7. Mr. DAY
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has any statistics that will show the number of accidents that have occurred during the last three months on the Colnbrook by-pass road; and are any consultations taking place at the present time between the officers of his Department and the staff of the county council as to the erection of further additional signs?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I am informed that during the period 1st July to 30th September 14 accidents, two of which were fatal, occurred on the Colnbrook by- 158 pass road. No recent consultations have taken place between the officers of my Department and the staff of the county council with regard to the erection of additional warning signs.
§ Mr. MORRISON
If my hon. Friend will communicate with me giving me the facts which he thinks require investigation, I will certainly go into them with the proper authorities.
§ Sir DOUGLAS NEWTON
Will the hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of making roads primary and secondary in the matter of giving preference to traffic?
