HC Deb 26 February 1958 vol 583 cc42-3W
Mr. Neal

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will take the necessary steps to enforce a minimum standard of street lighting on all roads for which his Department bears financial responsibility.

Mr. Watkinson

Where I consider that a trunk road should have a better standard of street lighting I am ready to make a contribution to the lighting authority of 50 per cent. of the cost of improvement and subsequent maintenance, but I would not normally be prepared to proceed without the collaboration of the local lighting authority.
