HC Deb 15 March 1939 vol 345 cc394-5
39. Mr. Pilkington

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will now give a date on which the five pedestrian crossings in Huyton on the Liverpool-Prescot road will be in working order?

Mr. Burgin

I have recently approved a revised scheme providing for the establishment of the five crossings referred to by my hon. Friend. I understand that the Huyton-with-Roby Urban District Council have already put the necessary works in hand.

Mr. Pilkington

Can the right hon. Gentleman give the actual date when they will be ready? At the moment they are half-begun and not finished, and no work is going on, but accidents are still occurring on that road.

Mr. Burgin

In reply to that further inquiry I could not give an actual date, but it is my desire that work be proceeded with as rapidly as possible.
