HC Deb 15 February 1922 vol 150 cc1046-7W
Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Home Secretary whether during the present Session it is his intention to make compulsory the carrying of a rear light by bicyclists; whether legislation will be necessary to effect this; and has he made full inquiries of those who are entitled to speak for the general body of bicyclists as to what they desire in the matter?


Legislation dealing with the question of the lighting of road vehicles is under consideration upon reports made by the Departmental Committee on Lights on Vehicles (Command Paper 659). I cannot say whether time will permit of a Bill being introduced this Session. The answer to the last part of the question is in the affirmative.
