HC Deb 21 January 1965 vol 705 cc131-2W
Sir Ronald Russell

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he is now in a position to state the result of the discussions between his Ministry and the Ministry of Transport on the problem of facilities for pedestrians crossing the roadways of St. James's Park.

Miss Jennie Lee

A census recently taken by the Ministry of Transport shows that, apart from points where they are already assisted, pedestrians also need assistance in crossing the Mall by the Duke of York's steps. I will provide a patrol here at peak periods as soon as a suitable recruit can be enlisted. If, on further examination, a case is established for providing assistance to pedestrians at other points, I will provide further patrols as soon as men can be obtained.
