HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 cc123-4W
115. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take steps to ensure that all heavy-goods vehicles carry adequate rear lights.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

The law requires heavy-goods vehicles, in common with other vehicles, on the road during the hours of darkness to carry one lamp showing to the rear a red light visible from a reasonable distance. Enforcement of this requirement is a matter for the police.
