§ 1. Mr. William Shepherd
asked the. Minister of Transport what prospect there is of action being taken this winter to deal with the problem of dazzling headlights.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Mr. James Callaghan)
The Road Research Board have made an interim report on this problem, and my Department is consulting the motor industry on the best way of putting its recommendations into effect.
§ Mr. Shepherd
Are we to assume from that answer that something at last is being done about this problem? Can the hon. Gentleman say when these recommendations will, in fact, see the light of day—or night?
§ Mr. Callaghan
If that is a request for publication I will convey it to the Director of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research. A number of these adjustments must, of course, depend on the supply position.
§ Mr. Anthony Greenwood
Is my hon. Friend aware that the present Leader of the Opposition was once described by Mr. Lloyd George as being "habitually dazzled by the brilliance of his own headlights"? What steps is my hon. Friend going to take to protect the country from this grave risk?
