HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 cc321-2W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Minister of Transport what representations she has received on the inadequacy of pedal cyclists' rear lighting during the hours of darkness; and what changes she intends to seek in the legal requirements for them.

Mr. Swingler

The British Standards Institution has produced a new standard for cycle rear lamps "British Standard 3648" to meet the needs of cyclists. We are preparing Regulations to make the use of cycle rear lamps complying with it permissible forthwith and compulsory after October, 1968.
