HC Deb 28 May 1936 vol 312 c2216W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he will consider the possibility of taking steps to have light; fitted on the pylons throughout the country, in view of the number of fatal flying accidents caused by high-tension cables?


As regards lighting, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave yesterday to my hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool (Mr. Roland Robinson). The danger from pylons, however, can better be met by diverting the cables or placing them underground than by lighting, and I am glad to say that in a number of cases it has been possible to make such arrangements.
