HC Deb 08 March 1948 vol 448 c109W
8. Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will reconsider his recent decision to withdraw approval to the retention of coloured pedestrian crossings.

Mr. Barnes

If an improved method of marking pedestrian crossings is devised, I shall be pleased to consider its adoption, but, on the evidence at present before me, I am satisfied that the use of coloured road surfaces for this purpose should be discontinued.
