§ Mr. Hay
My right hon. Friend has recently made Regulations for this purpose. The Road Vehicles Lighting (Amendment) Regulations, 1961, have the effect of requiring that after 18th October next all pedal cycles must have 1301 rear lamps which were manufactured to meet the relevant British Standard specification on light output.
§ Mr. Pym
While thanking my hon. Friend for that reply, which I am very glad to hear, may I ask him if he thinks that this regulation will overcome the danger which motorists feel—that, against the glare of on-coming headlights, they find it extremely difficult to see these rearlights on bicycles—and does he think that this danger has now been overcome?
