asked the Minister of Transport if he, will abolish traffic signals wherever possible and replace them, if necessary, by roundabouts, in view of the continuous movement which takes place at roundabouts compared with the stopping of at least two streams of traffic at traffic signals.

I can give no general undertaking about the replacement of traffic lights by roundabouts because the best treatment of each junction will depend on local circumstances. Within the limits of what is practicable, we aim, in each case, to adopt the solution which will give the best traffic flow.
