HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 c106W
82. Dr. Gilbert

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to amend the Vehicles Lighting Regulations so as to permit the use of revolving blue or red flashing beacons on fire and ambulance service vehicles.

Mr. Peyton

Blue beacons are already permitted. I do not propose to seek powers to permit red beacons.

98. Sir Clive Bossom

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in order to obtain better and earlier fog warning for motorists, if he will seek powers to require the installation of supplementary intense rear lights on vehicles, together with a second set of higher and brighter rear lights on trucks.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

My right hon. Friend is re-examining these ideas in co-operation with the motoring organisations, the road haulage industry and the police.
