HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 c84W
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.
