Lords Amendment: In page 5, line 3, at end, insert new Clause "A"—
A.—(1) Nothing in the principal Act or this Act shall require a vehicle to carry separate lamps for different purposes, if it carries a lamp satisfying all the requirements which would be applicable to separate lamps carried by it for those purposes.
(2) The Minister's power to make regulations as to the position in which lamps carried for the purpose of subsection (1) of section one
of the principal Act are to be attached to the vehicle shall include power to make special provision, as respects any class or description of vehicle, as to the position in which a lamp carried for the purposes both of paragraph (a) and of paragraph (b) of that subsection is to be attached; and in a case for which special provision is so made the reference in the foregoing subsection to the requirements which would be applicable to separate lamps shall not include the requirements of any regulations as to the position of a separate lamp carried for the purposes of the said paragraph (a) or (b).
(3)Paragraph (i) of section six of the principal Act is hereby repealed.
(4) This section shall come into operation on the first day of October, nineteen hundred and fifty-four.
I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
The new Clause has become necessary because the industry and various associations have pointed out that there are more than a few cases where a multiple lamp —a lamp with one bulb showing white to the front and another showing red to the rear—can apply. The Clause covers the position more comprehensively.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
