HC Deb 24 July 1964 vol 699 c161W
Sir R. Russell

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he is satisfied with the facilities for pedestrians to cross the roadway of St. James's Park when there is no traffic control by the police or a park keeper, especially at the foot of Waterloo steps, and at Queen Anne's Gate; and why pedestrian crossings have not been installed in the Royal Parks.

Mr. Sharples

I appreciate that pedestrians are finding increasing difficulty in crossing roads at some points in St. James's Park. Discussions are taking place between this Ministry and the Ministry of Transport in order to find a solution which will, if possible, avoid the installation of pedestrian crossings with flashing beacons and zebra stripes.
