HC Deb 24 April 1972 vol 835 c196W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in view of recent fatal accidents, he will expedite the installation of crash barriers on the central reservation of the M1motorway in Leicestershire; and when he expects such barriers to be installed.

Mr. Graham Page

No. To do so would mean that the installation of central reserve safety barriers on more heavily trafficked motorways would be delayed. The section of M1in Leicestershire is programmed to be equipped with barriers in 1973–74.
