HC Deb 27 January 1960 vol 616 c31W
17. Mr. Howell

asked the Minister of Transport if, in order to expedite the loading and unloading of passengers by buses stopping at the kerbside, he will prohibit all vehicles, other than public service vehicles, from stopping within 50 feet of an authorised omnibus stop, the prohibition area to be marked by studs similar to those preceding a pedestrian crossing.

Mr. Marples

The use of the normal "Bus Stop" marking is usually sufficient to keep an adequate length of kerbside clear at bus stops. I would deprecate prohibitions which might, in most cases, prove more restrictive than is required.
