HC Deb 29 June 1966 vol 730 c274W
131. Mr. Boardman

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the number of road accidents caused after darkness by stationary or slow-moving heavy vehicles with poor or defective rear lights, she will consider amending the Road Traffic Acts to require all heavy vehicles to be fitted with reflective registration plates.

Mr. Swingler

My right hon. Friend's Working Party on the lighting of vehicles is considering all means of improving the visibility of heavy goods vehicles from the rear. She will consider whether we need to amend the Road Transport Lighting Act in this way when she receives the Working Party's views.
