§ Commander Courtney
asked the Minister of Transport whether experiments with light-controlled pedestrian crossings have now provided sufficient experience; and if, in the light of the mounting toll of road accidents, he will announce a national policy for pedestrian crossings as soon as possible.
§ Mr. Marples
The results of the "Panda" crossing experiment have needed very careful and thorough examination and this has involved consideration of the much wider question of pedestrian crossing policy as a whole. In this we have been in close touch with the Road Research Laboratory. Examination of this important matter is not quite complete, but I will make a statement as soon as possible.
