HC Deb 30 January 1940 vol 356 cc987-8W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the increasing road accidents due to black-out conditions, he will instruct local authori- ties to renew white lines more often, and to mark dangerous crossings, corners, etc., with reflecting studs?

Captain Wallace

I have no power to instruct local authorities as suggested by my hon. Friend, but the officers of the Ministry have not failed to impress upon authorities the need for the efficient maintenance of white lines and to urge the extended use of reflecting studs in situations where the additional expenditure can be justified.
