§ 4. Mr. Macdonald
asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to ensure that portable red reflecting road accident prevention triangles which do not comply with the relevant British Standards specification are not used on public roads.
§ Mr. Macdonald
Is my hon. Friend aware that there are triangles on sale which can be blown over or blown round in a breeze and therefore give no protection but merely a false sense of security? Is it not ridiculous to allow the import of triangles which do not comply with the standards which we require?
We are working to international standards for these triangles and it would be wrong to anticipate any change.
