HC Deb 20 May 1936 vol 312 cc1192-3
54. Mr. E. SMITH

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider advising the responsible authorities that certain streets and roads in close proximity to schools and large works that are deemed to be dangerous shall be closed to traffic for 10 minutes in the morning, noon, and evening?


I shall be prepared to consider on its merits any order for this purpose submitted for my confirmation by a local authority.


Is the Minister prepared to spend 10 minutes with me some dinnertime, away from this House? I will show him places where this kind of thing ought to be done.


I shall be glad to consider the hon. Member's offer of hospitality.
