§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
The counts show that a crossing facility is not justified at Landrake, but we are proposing a road widening at Tideford which will allow for pedestrian refuges.
§ Mr. Hicks
Since the Minister has just made this decision, and bearing in mind that both villages are divided by a main trunk road, is the Minister aware that. whatever may be his assessment of the official statistics, most local people feel that some form of controlled crossing should be installed rather than adopt the system which the Minister proposes and in the case of Landrake to do nothing at all.
§ Mr. Griffiths
The advantages of having nationally consistent criteria are accepted on all sides of the House. In respect of Landrake these are less than 50 per cent. satisfied, but in respect of Tideford I hope that road widening and pedestrian refuges can be put in by the summer.
