HC Deb 07 April 1965 vol 710 cc73-4W
54. Mr. George Jeger

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has studied the evidence of the Automobile Association, a copy of which has been sent to him, which shows that only about 62 per cent. of the traffic on the roads after dark is properly lit; and what steps he will take to improve this situation.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I have seen the recent Press notice in which the Automobile Association gave this figure, which I find most disturbing. I have asked for a copy of the survey on which it is based and shall consider whether any further action on my part is called for. Meanwhile I would stress that it is the responsibility of all drivers to ensure that their lights are properly maintained.
