§ 16. Commander Viscount CURZON
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the event of the Committee on the Lighting of Motor Cars failing to find any solution of the problem of dazzle from the headlights of motor vehicles, he will take steps to prohibit the use of headlights in areas where adequate street lighting exists.
§ 23. Colonel YATE
asked the Minister of Transport whether he can arrange for the issue of a police regulation prohibiting the use of dazzling headlights in well-lighted streets pending the introduction of the proposed legislation.
§ Mr. NEAL
As the hon. Member is aware, the Minister of Transport has no power under existing legislation to make any order prohibiting the use of headlights. The Interim Report of the Committee on Lights on Vehicles recommended that pending the solution of the dazzle problem the candle power and size of apertures might be limited. Experiments are still proceeding on the subject of dazzle.
§ Viscount CURZON
Have we to wait until some indefinite date before anything can be done to put an end to this abuse?
