HC Deb 22 June 1955 vol 542 c1304
51. Mr. Crouch

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation when he expects to receive the Report on the result of the investigation by the Road Research Laboratory into the confusion caused by flashing indicators on motor vehicles.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I hope to receive a Report on flashing indicators before the end of October.

Mr. Crouch

May I ask my right hon. Friend, who has great knowledge and considerable ability, why it has taken so long for a report on these blinking, winking lights, in view of the increasing body of public opinion that they are dangerous? Some are red, some amber and some white.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I liked the first part of my hon. Friend's supplementary question, but as regards the second part, this matter is being examined by the Road Research Laboratory, which is a highly competent body, and I think that it would be sensible to await its Report before coming to decisions.

Forward to
