HC Deb 19 October 1939 vol 352 cc1036-7
65. Mr. Dobbie

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the increased number of accidents in the country and the considerable public feeling on the matter, he will give consideration to a moderation of the black-out arrangements all over the country?

Sir J. Anderson

I would refer the hon. Member to the full statement made yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport in answer to questions by the hon. Members for Colchester (Mr. Lewis) and Ealing (Sir F. Sanderson).

Mr. Simmonds

Can my right hon. Friend say why the French people are allowed by the French Government more light than the British people are allowed by the British Government?

Mr. Dobbie

As the statement to which the right hon. Gentleman refers shows a considerable increase in the number of deaths, will not the Minister again consider reviewing the whole situation?

Sir J. Anderson

My right hon. and gallant Friend said yesterday that the matter was being reviewed.
