HC Deb 17 January 1945 vol 407 c177W
Mr. Bowles

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether, now that the Ministry of Home Security has permitted headlights of motor cars to be unmasked, he will make an order that no beam from a headlight shall incline above the horizontal.

Mr. Noel-Baker

It recently became necessary for special reasons, and at short notice, to remove the war-time restrictions on motor headlights. Apart from other considerations, it would not have been practicable, in these circumstances, to introduce the requirement which my hon. Friend suggests. I have every sympathy with my hon. Friend's purpose, but the question of dazzle is one of great difficulty, and requires much further examination and research.
