HC Deb 19 October 1966 vol 734 cc48-9W
51. Mr. George Jeger

asked the Minister of Transport whether she is aware that the official sign, Stop while lights are flashed, on railway level crossings is causing confusion and danger in Yorkshire, where the word "while" is often taken to mean until; and whether she will have the word when substituted for while.

Mr. Swingler

My right hon. Friend has agreed that the word "when" may be substituted for the word "while" on this sign in areas where this is thought to be necessary.
