HC Deb 18 February 1941 vol 369 c41W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Home Secretary whether he will reconsider his decision in rejecting the suggestion of the Hull local authority on street lighting during blackout; and whether he will authorise a representative of his Department to go to Hull and investigate the experiment?

Mr. H. Morrison:

I understand that my lion. Friend is referring to a recent proposal by the Hull Corporation to instal illuminated indicators at bus stops, I have given further consideration to this matter, but I do not think that it would be desirable, under present conditions, to make any addition to the existing lights in the streets of Hull. In these circumstances, I do not consider that investigation by a representative of my Department would serve any useful purpose.
