HC Deb 15 March 1945 vol 409 c369
19. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the differences in street lighting as between town and town and as between various sections of the same city and if, to avoid accidents, he will endeavour to secure a minimum national standard of lighting for all main routes.

Mr. H. Morrison

Under emergency legislation it has been necessary to limit the amount of street lighting allowed in war-time, but I have no power to require any minimum standard of street lighting.
