HC Deb 12 December 1962 vol 669 cc79-80W
102. Mr. Cooper

asked the Minister of Transport what action he has taken to ensure in the interests of road safety that white lines on main roads are kept as complete and clean as possible.

Mr. Marples

This is a matter of maintenance which rests with the local authority either as highway authority or as my agent for trunk roads. I am not aware of any general failure to keep white lines complete and clean, but if my hon. Friend has any particular instance of neglect in mind, perhaps he would let me know.
