HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 c156W
34. Mr. Bence

asked the Minister of Transport what representations he has received respecting placing of lighting standards on kerbs; and whether he will take steps to see that all lighting standards are placed on the inner side of footpaths.

Vice-Admiral Hughes Hallett

Very few. It is normal practice to place lighting columns clear of carriageways and in new installations the columns are now usually placed at the back of the footpath if possible. This is the practice my right hon. Friend follows for trunk roads, to which alone his powers extend.
