HC Deb 16 February 1968 vol 758 c430W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport whether she is aware of the dangers caused to motorists and others by stationary refuse skip tanks left by builders, demolition firms and others in unlighted and dimly lit roads and streets without warning lights: and whether she will take steps to ensure that these solid iron containers are properly lit during the hours of darkness.

Mr. Carmichael:
