HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 cc275-6W
Mr. Redmond

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in view of the difficulty pedestrians are experiencing in crossing roads by traffic lights because it is impossible to see from the side of the road when the lights are changing, whether he will alter the lights so that this changing can be seen from the side.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

No. Pedestrians should watch traffic as well as lights and a special light for their benefit could be misleading.
