HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c188W
75. Mr. Fisher

asked the Minister of Transport if he will seek to give more power to local road safety committees to secure greater safety at road junctions, alter traffic signal phasing and introduce new pedestrian crossing points, in the light of local circumstances.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Local authorities no doubt take into account any views expressed by road safety committees in formulating proposals on these matters. The extent to which powers are delegated to road safety committees is for the authorities themselves to decide.
