§ 54. Mr. Awbery
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the concern of the Bristol Council at the absence of pedestrian crossings or traffic signs near the Bristol Old People's Home near Flax Burton, and that the two councils concerned have failed to arrive at a satisfac- 44W tory arrangement; and if he will now receive a deputation from the council's welfare services committee to discuss the authorisation of a special type of traffic sign near this home.
§ Mr. Marples
As I informed the hon. Member on 30th January, I do not regard warning signs for old people's homes as a reliable safety measure. I understand that the Somerset Council Council, who are the highway authority for the A.370 road adjoining the home, share my view. No purpose would, therefore, be served by my receiving a deputation to discuss a sign.
