HC Deb 08 March 1939 vol 344 cc2158-9W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will inquire from the London Passenger Transport Board as to the possibility and desirability of using automatic traffic signals on their omnibuses; whether there is any objection to such a policy; and if, in that case, he will ascertain the nature of such objection?

Mr. Burgin

Following a report by the Departmental Committee on Traffic Signs it was decided not to make the fitting of direction indicators and stop lights compulsory on any class of motor vehicles. I should not feel justified in asking the London Passenger Transport Board to accept an obligation not binding on operators of public service vehicles generally.
