HC Deb 16 November 1926 vol 199 cc1705-6W

asked the Secretary for Mines how many places are entirely without any system of public lighting in the streets owing to the interpretation of the Ministerial order that economy in lighting is to be observed; and whether this arrangement, which is inconvenient to local residents, meets with the approval of his Department?

Colonel LANE FOX

I am not aware of any place which is entirely without street lighting for the reason stated. In Article 31 of the Coal (Emergency) Directions, which provides for the restriction of public lighting, power is specifically given to chief officers of police to require the maintenance of such public lamps as they may consider necessary for the public safety.
