§ Mr. Atkins
[holding answer 21 May 1990]: The transport and road research laboratory has conducted a considerable amount of research into motor cycle conspicuity, with regard to both running lights, and to the riders' clothing. The results of this research have been reported in TRRL report LR1137 and, most recently, in a paper to the 1990 Society of Automobile Engineers conference.
