HC Deb 18 November 1970 vol 806 cc411-2W
70. Sir C. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will do away with amber lights at automatic traffic controls as is the practice in many other countries.

Mr. Peyton

No. The general experience of continental countries is that amber lights are an aid to safety. Con- tinental signals without amber lights are gradually being replaced in accordance with the Vienna convention.
