HC Deb 28 January 1959 vol 598 c105W
Mr. Page

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what consideration he has given to the several road safety measures submitted to him at the meeting of women's organisations on 20th November, 1958; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Watkinson

All the suggestions made at the meeting to which my hon. Friend refers are being actively examined by my Department in collaboration with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents; many of them call for action by individuals and organisations rather than by my Ministry. I should like to take this opportunity of expressing my gratitude to the organisers of the meeting for their valuable initiative, the results of which will be of great help to us both in giving advice to road users and when considering the possibility of future road safety legislation.
