HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 c284W
57. Sir D. Walker-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is aware of the concern felt in such areas of the insufficient consideration given to aspects of amenity in street lighting schemes in rural areas; and whether he will issue guidance on the matter and stress the desirability of providing non-distorting light in such areas wherever practicable.

Mr. Speed

The use of white light in all rural areas could not be justified economically. I propose to issue guidance to lighting authorities on the use of white light in conservation and other sensitive areas.
