§ Mr. Watkins
asked the Minister of Transport if, for the avoidance of doubt, he will introduce legislation to clarify the status of school crossing patrol wardens on clearway sections of trunk roads and to enable the authorities to take action against those who ignore signals to stop made by such wardens.
§ Mr. Marples
No. Existing legislation makes it quite clear that vehicles should stop when required to do so by a prescribed sign exhibited by a school crossing patrol. The Clearways Orders do not alter this requirement in any way.
