HC Deb 20 April 1937 vol 322 c1585
59. Mr. Lyons

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can now give any report on the efficiency of the illuminated kerb as a factor in road safety; and in what areas it is being utilised?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Captain Austin Hudson)

There are installations at Kingston-on-Thames, Nottingham, Tynemouth and North Shields. They are at present in the experimental stage.

Mr. Lyons

Can my hon. and gallant Friend say whether, so far as can be ascertained from the experiments, the illuminated kerb is giving satisfaction?

Captain Hudson

On the whole, we think that a system of adequate street lighting is preferable.
