HC Deb 24 October 1961 vol 646 cc75-6W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that left turns are now increasingly prohibited in Paris, as in the Champs Elysées, to facilitate the flow of traffic; and what plans he has for the further prohibition of right-hand turns at busy crossroads in London and other large towns.

Mr. Ernest Marples

Yes. I know that they restrict these turns in Paris. I have already prohibited right-hand turns at a large number of junctions in London, and have plans for a considerable extension of such controls. Outside London, this is a matter for the local authority concerned.
