§ 9. Mr. ELLIS DAVIES
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether Order 289, Defence of the Realm Act, regulating lights visible from the sea or from the navigable waters of any estuary, prohibits the use of lights on motor cars if such light be visible from the sea; and, if so, whether, in view of the statutory provision against travelling after sunset without lights, it is proposed to amend the Statute in that behalf?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Brace)
Yes, Sir, the Defence of the Realm Order covers motorcar lights, and is made under statutory authority. No other amendment of the ordinary statutory provision appears to be required.
