§ Mr. Ogden
asked the Minister of Transport (1) whether, in the interests of road safety, she will ask the lighting working party to treat with more urgency their study of the Road Research Laboratory Report of 12th January, 1967, and other relevant factors regarding the use of reflectorised number plates;
(2) what inquiries have been made by the lighting working party since 12th January, 1967; and how frequently the working party meet to consider the possible use of reflectorised number plates.
§ Mr. Swingler
The Working Party on Vehicle Lighting meets every two months and makes recommendations as soon as it has brought the study of any matter to a conclusion. It has had copies of this report and arranged to see a demonstration of reflectorised number plates. Any recommendation for their use would be likely to entail legislation before it could be brought into effect.
