§ Mr. Doland
asked the Minister of Transport what steps are being taken to lessen the toll of accidents and fatalities occurring throughout the country during the black-out period; and will he take such steps as lie in his power to impress upon the public the wearing of light-coloured garments as suggested, after experiment, by such bodies as the Men's Wear Council?
§ Captain Wallace
As regards the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement which I made on 9th November in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Creech Jones). As regards the second part, my right hon. Friend the Minister of Home Security and I have both urged pedestrians to wear or carry something white at night. They may also use a torch to indicate their presence when crossing a road, provided that it is directed downwards.
