§ Sir R. Russell
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what has been the outcome of the discussions which were being held between his Department and the Ministry of Transport last summer about the increasing difficulties of pedestrians in crossing roads at some points in St. James's Park, Westminster.
§ Mr. Boyden
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply to his earlier question of 20th January.
Patrols are now being provided at peak periods on most days to assist pedestrians at the crossing in the Mall by the Duke of York's steps. As soon as the staff situation permits, this service will be provided regularly. The need for assistance at other points has not so far been established but the position is being further examined.
