HC Deb 04 March 1929 vol 226 c49W

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the number of cyclists who ignore the regulations regarding the rear reflector; and what steps, if any, he proposes to take in the matter?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have received representations to the effect that many cyclists are still unprovided during the hours of darkness with a red rear light, or, alternatively, with an efficient red reflector, as required by the provisions of the Road Transport Lighting Act, 1927. The enforcement of the law in this respect is a matter for the police.
