HC Deb 28 February 1940 vol 357 c2086W
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.
