HC Deb 10 November 1966 vol 735 c329W
55 Mr. Macdonald

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to transfer to London borough councils and make mandatory the permissive power given to the Metropolitan Police by the Road Traffic Act 1960 to arrange street crossing patrols.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I have no plans for amending legislation, but I should be willing to consider this if it was the general desire of the local authorities concerned that I should do so.
