HC Deb 06 February 1939 vol 343 c643
87. Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Minister of Transport what steps are being taken to secure reasonable uniformity in the lighting of portions of traffic routes, as recommended by the Departmental Committee on Street Lighting?

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

Before making agreements with the responsible lighting authorities for the lighting of trunk roads, my right hon. Friend satisfies himself as to the adequacy of the installation proposed. He has no control over the lighting of other roads, but has brought the committee's report to the notice of all the principal lighting authorities, and the systems which have recently been installed show that regard is being had to the committee's recommendations.
