HC Deb 31 July 1962 vol 664 cc63-4W
75. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works why there are no pedestrian crossings in the road ways of St. James's Park; if he is aware, especially, of the haphazard way in which pedestrians cross over to the Queen Victoria memorial in front of Buckingham Palace; and what steps he proposes to make the use of this roadway easier for both drivers and pedestrians.

Mr. Rippon

The most popular crossing points for pedestrians in St. James's Park are controlled at peak traffic periods by policemen or park-keepers. I should like if I can to avoid the installation of pedestrian crossings but I will re-examine with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport, the need for further measures.
