HC Deb 23 November 1966 vol 736 cc312-3W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Minister of Transport if she will make regulations to make it obligatory to fit blinking trafficators to all vehicles irrespective of the date of manufacture or registration.

Mrs. Castle

My Working Party on the Lighting of Vehicles will shortly consider proposed regulations to make compulsory the fitting of direction indicators on all vehicles—with certain exceptions. Any direction indicators fitted to new motor vehicles or to a trailer drawn by one must now be of the flashing amber type. The question whether there would be justification for prohibiting other types now in use on some vehicles will be considered by the Working Party.
