HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 c92W
113. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Minister of Transport why reflecting road studs in built-up areas are not being replaced when damaged, and are to be taken up as roads are resurfaced; and if he will reconsider this decision in view of the difficulties of driving in darkened streets in winter.

Mr. Barnes

On main traffic routes in urban areas, where reflecting studs were provided during the war, street lighting is now back to a reasonable standard and motorists do not generally use their headlamps. I am advised that the studs are, accordingly, of little value in such areas.
