§ 19. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether, in view of the large amount of barbed wire being placed in and around the London parks and, in view of the danger therefrom to pedestrians during the black-out period, he will arrange to have plain guard wires in suitable positions?
§ Mr. Hicks
In view of the necessity for conserving stocks of metal, I regret that I am unable to adopt the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion. I am not aware of any accidents to pedestrians owing to barbed wire during the blackout hours, but, if the hon. and gallant Member has any particular danger points in mind, I will consider the desirability of installing suitable warning lights.
§ Sir J. Lucas
Has the Minister considered the effect on courting couples when the weather gets better?
