HC Deb 09 March 1925 vol 181 cc959-60W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the recently completed great Cambridge road is entirely without lights; and, in view of the importance of this thoroughfare and in the interests of public safety, whether he will refer this matter to the Advisory Committee under the London Traffic Act?

Colonel ASHLEY

I would remind the hon. Member that street lighting comes within the purview of the responsible local authorities, who will, I feel sure, take any steps that are necessary in the interests of public safety. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
