HC Deb 17 March 1947 vol 435 c16W
82. Mr. Shurmer

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the inconvenience of the blackout and the fact that there is very little economy in gas or electricity saved, he will consider restoring street lighting at an early date.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

In view of the present fuel position and of introduction of Summer time my right hon. Friend would not feel justified in restoring street lighting.
