§ 50. Sir G. FOX
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that many motor coaches carry side lamps so high that they are useless; and whether he will consider the desirability of issuing a regulation that side lamps should be carried at a uniform height at which theirutility for road purposes is greatest?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Lieut.-Colonel Headlam)
I agree that side lamps on motor vehicles should not be carried at too great a height, but my attention had not been drawn to any special difficulty with regard to motor coaches in this respect. Normally these vehicles, owing to their internal lighting, are sufficiently visible at night. I doubt whether a regulation on the subject is necessary, but I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind.
