HC Deb 10 February 1960 vol 617 c49W
65. Lady Gammans

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is satisfied that the different kinds and colours of street lighting are not confusing to motorists; and whether he will consider introducing legislation imposing a uniform pattern and colour.

Mr. Marples

Provided the lighting is in accordance with the British Standard Codes of Practice, which do not specify colour or type of lamp, there is no evidence to show that confusion is caused by differences in colour or design. As local authorities installing new lighting systems usually follow these Standard Codes of Practice, I do not think there is any need for legislation imposing uniformity.
