HC Deb 13 March 1947 vol 434 c247W
Mr. E. P. Smith

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider abolishing the traffic light system in the Metropolitan area during daylight on Sundays in order to save current, in view of the fact that its continuance, when it is unnecessary and their own power is off, is a cause of aggravation to the housewives in the area.

Mr. Barnes

No, Sir, the adoption of the course suggested would add to the risk of accidents.
