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?
§ Mr. NEAL
Legislation dealing with the question of the lighting of road vehicles is under consideration upon 1047W 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.
