HC Deb 17 February 1970 vol 796 c247
Dr. Dickson Mabon

I beg to move Amendment No. 6, in page 4, line 7, after 'highway,' insert 'on the footpath'.

This is a drafting Amendment to make clear that where a highway authority considers that a footpath giving direct access to a highway may cause danger it will have power to erect a barrier or fence on the footpath at or near the point of access to the road. It is advisable to make this clear since the footpath would not normally be the property of the highway authority. Hon. Members will recall that powers to erect a barrier or fence within the highway near a footpath would be conferred by paragraph (a) or (c) of Clause 5(1).

Amendment agreed to.
