§ Mr. GLEDHILL
asked the Minister of Transport if the traffic lanes now being marked on certain main roads are so marked under his instructions; and if he will prepare and circulate to all road users exact instructions for the use of these traffic lanes?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Traffic lanes have been marked on various main routes by the highway authorities at my predecessor's request, as an indication that drivers should keep within the nearside lane, except when overtaking another vehicle. Notices to this effect are displayed on some of the routes, and the intention of the lanes seems to be generally understood, so that the action suggested by my hon. Friend would appear to be unnecessary.
