HC Deb 25 February 1946 vol 419 c333W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of War Transport whether he will have the base of the Cenotaph in Whitehall either illuminated or white painted, in order to add to the safety of drivers of vehicles.

Mr. Barnes

I do not think there is a need on traffic grounds to adopt either of my hon. Friend's suggestions as I am informed by Scotland Yard that they have no record of any accident at the Cenotaph within the last 12 months, and that the general lighting of Whitehall is sufficiently good for traffic purposes.
