HC Deb 08 April 1941 vol 370 c1419
71. Mr. David Adams

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has considered the desirability of more adequate lighting of the approaches to our ports, except at the inception of air-raid warnings?

The Civil Lord of the Admiralty (Captain Austin Hudson)

Every endeavour is made to maintain sufficient navigational aids for our shipping whilst, as far as possible, avoiding assistance to the enemy. I regret that it has not been possible up to the present to overcome all the practical difficulties in the way of substantial improvement, but the situation is constantly under review in an endeavour to dispose of the difficulties.

Mr. Adams

Is the Minister aware of the large toll of losses as a result of inadequate lighting?
