HC Deb 12 March 1941 vol 369 c1301W
Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Minister of Transport, whether, in view of the crushing to death of a little boy in a rush for an omnibus at Carlisle, he will advise all local authorities to prescribe the introduction of the queue system in connection with all omnibus and tramway services, and to see that its observance is complied with?

Mr. E. Brown

I have been asked to reply. A number of local authorities have exercised the powers they possess of regulating this matter by by-laws, and I have no reason to think that other authorities would hesitate to do so in suitable cases. i will, however, consider, in consultation with my right hon. and gallant Friend the Minister of Transport, whether it is desirable to bring the matter specially to the notice of such local authorities as are concerned.
