HC Deb 01 May 1968 vol 763 c221W
Dr. John Dunwoody

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, if he will take steps to ensure that all schoolchildren are instructed as to the operation of automatic half-barrier level crossings as a routine part of their road safety tuition.

Miss Bacon

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to his similar Question on 1st February. I am assured by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport that, when half-barrier crossings are introduced, officials of British Rail will visit local schools to give detailed advice to the children on their operation, to show films and to distribute posters and pamphlets.—[Vol. 757; c. 1545–6.]
