§ Sir R. Russell
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in the interests of road safety, he will take steps to encourage the production of a foolproof lamp, from which electric batteries cannot be stolen, for lighting builders' skips.
§ Mr. Peyton
The lamps used for the lighting of builders' skips are the normal road danger lamps used for the delineation of road works. My Department is currently co-operating with the British Standards Institution in the production of a British standard for road danger lamps. Steps will be taken to draw to the attention of the British Standards Institution the need to make the battery compartment of road danger lamps vandal resistant.
