§ 24. Mr. McEntee
asked the Home Secretary whether he will, in conjunction with other authorities concerned, consider the advisability on dark nights and when enemy aircraft are not in the vicinity, of showing a sufficient number of searchlights at a low altitude to provide some light on the streets for the convenience of pedestrians and motorists and as a means of reducing the number of road accidents?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The possibility of using searchlights for this purpose has been fully considered, but I am satisfied that the objections to the suggestion are such that it is impracticable.
