HC Deb 06 March 1940 vol 358 c397W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider issuing regulations requiring trailer vehicles attached to light cars or lorries to carry two side lights at the forward inner and off-side, in view of the fact that persons in the black-out are in some cases unaware that a trailer vehicle is attached to a van, lorry or light car, and thus walk into the attached vehicle?

Mr. Mabane

The danger which my hon. Friend has in mind had already been brought to the notice of my right hon. Friend, and trailers have been required to carry two side lamps by paragraph 22 of the Lighting (Restrictions) Order, 1940. It has been represented to my right hon. Friend that vehicle owners are finding difficulty in obtaining the necessary lamps and they are being allowed a period of grace until the 1st April.
