HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 c137W
82. Mr. Houghton

asked the Minister of Transport what reply he intends to give to the protest sent him by the Sowerby Bridge Urban District Council against the delay in reaching a decision on the council's application with respect to the improved lighting scheme for the main street; and when a decision will be reached.

Mr. Barnes

I regret that there has been some delay in dealing with this case. The council were informed on 1st November, 1950, that while I was willing to agree to Group A lighting I could not, on the ground that it would involve unnecessary expense, approve the use of fluorescent lighting. At the council's request I gave the matter further consideration, but reaffirmed my decision on the 31st January last.
