HC Deb 12 January 1916 vol 77 c1598

The following question stood on the Paper in the name of Mr. Ashley

42.To ask why, under Home Office Regulations, no light which is not obscured by blinds or some other means may shine from the windows of public and private buildings in the parish of Romsey Infra and Exton, in Hampshire, in view of the fact that the lights of the military camps in the same parish are unobscured and visible from a distance of four or five miles?


May I be allowed to congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on his appointment?


In the case of lights in military camps, situated as these are, arrangements can be made for rapidly and completely extinguishing all lights in an emergency which are not applicable to the lights in houses and other private premises in towns and villages in the neighbourhood.
