Mr. David Adams
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will make representations to the London Passenger Transport Board that there should be a more drastic revision of their schedules operating in the black-out so as to reduce the strain on the drivers and enable them to keep within a speed that is safe, in view of the restricted front illumination now provided?
§ Captain Wallace
The Board are satisfied that revisions already made in their schedules do not impose any greater strain on drivers than is necessarily involved in driving under "black-out" conditions. The staff in any case are not penalised for late running. I am satisfied that the Board are fully alive to their responsibilities in this matter.
