HC Deb 02 November 1939 vol 352 c2083
22. Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Home Secretary whether he can make a statement regarding the experiment in street lighting recently carried out in Liverpool; and whether he intends to adopt this form of lighting for London?

Sir J. Anderson

My advisers have investigated the system of street lighting which has been tried, on a small experimental scale, at Liverpool: but their investigations must be supplemented by observation from the air which, on account of the state of the moon, has not yet been possible. Arrangements have been made to carry out the necessary tests at the earliest opportunity.
