HC Deb 11 February 1952 vol 495 c137W
Mr. Porter

asked the Minister of Transport what lights omnibuses and similar service vehicles are, by his present Regulations, compelled to use.

Mr. Maclay

Public service vehicles are required to carry, during the hours of darkness, two lamps each showing to the front a white light, and one lamp showing to the rear a red light. They must be kept in an efficient condition, and be visible from a reasonable distance. Headlights are not obligatory, but if fitted must be adjusted or be capable of being dipped so that a person standing more than 25 feet away is not dazzled.
