HC Deb 23 April 1951 vol 487 c18
40. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the dazzling effect of vertical fluorescent lighting now used in shop windows; and what steps he intends to take to eliminate this danger to road safety.

Mr. Barnes

I have no evidence that this form of lighting is likely to cause danger through dazzle, but if the hon. Member will give me particulars of any cases he has in mind I will look into them.

Mr. Shepherd

Would the right hon. Gentleman take a trip to the north end of Bond Street this evening, where he will be satisfied that the danger is real?

Mr. Barnes

I have had no complaint about this form of dazzle.
