4. Major THOMAS
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the provisions of the law governing the carrying of efficient red reflectors by pedal cyclists have never been universally enforced; and whether he will now take steps to ensure that these regulations are observed in the interests of safety to all who use the roads?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Gilmour)
The attention of chief officers of police has on more than one occasion been drawn to the importance of effective enforcement of the law in this respect, and I do not think that any further communication from the Home Office is called for at present.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are many cycles on the road which have never carried and are not carrying reflectors?
