HC Deb 10 March 1919 vol 113 c935W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will consider the need for an inquiry into the rates charged for supply of public lighting by public undertakings, as compared with private undertakings, and also as to the standardising of lighting, particularly in London and Greater London, with a view to the prevention of the use of high units of light, extravagant in point of finance and unnecessary and damaging to the eyesight?


I do not think that any useful purpose would be served by an inquiry into the matter referred to in the first part of the question. As regards the second part of the question I would refer my hon. Friend to my written reply to his question of the 4th March.
