HC Deb 08 March 1967 vol 742 cc283-4W
93. 93. Mr. Crawshaw

asked the Minister of Transport whether she will now make a statement on the experiment in respect of reflective number plates carried out by her Department.

Mr. Swingler

The Report on this experiment by the Road Research Laboratory shows that reflectorised number plates can be expected to have an effective life of several years and might improve safety at night by making unlit vehicles more conspicuous. The possible use of such number plates is being studied by the Working Party on Vehicle Lighting whose members have had copies of this Report.
