HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 cc1493-4W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the darkness in which the northern suburbs of London are at present plunged owing to the necessity of economy of fuel on the part of the local authorities, the shading of what weak lights are shown as a precaution against enemy aircraft, and the utilisation of a good part of the lighting and fuel available by newly erected factories engaged on urgent war work; and can he hold out any hopes of an early improvement in suburban conditions of lighting?


I will see wheher anything can be done in this matter, but it is not an easy one.
