HC Deb 06 December 1926 vol 200 cc1690-1W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the danger to pedestrians crossing the Haymarket, a one-way thoroughfare with a taxicab rank in the centre of the highway, he will consider the advisability of Regulations restricting the right or off-side of the street to fast moving traffic only?

Colonel ASHLEY

The suggested restriction of the west side of the Haymarket to fast moving traffic only is not practicable under existing conditions. Even if it were practicable I am satisfied that the risks to pedestrians crossing the street would, under such an arrangement, be increased rather than diminished.
