HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 c139W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Minister of Transport what measures he now proposes to take to reduce the number of accidents to unprotected children when crossing roads to make purchases at mobile ice cream vans.

Mr. Marples

Propaganda addressed to the parents of young children and training in kerb drill given to the children are both directed at preventing children from crossing roads carelessly. Special investigations are now going on into the sequence of events in which accidents happen to children visiting mobile shops. If these studios enable new measures to be devised for the protection of these children I shall seek to introduce them.
