asked the Minister of Transport if he has now considered the recommendations of the consultative committee on the lighting of traffic routes within the London conurbation; and if he will take the initiative in setting up a similar committee for the West Midland conurbation.
In reply to the first part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave on 24th January to the hon. Member for Islington, East (Mr. Fletcher). As to the second part, it was the lighting authorities who set up the London Committee. We should welcome any similar initiative by the authorities in the West Midland conurbation, or elsewhere, and would be glad to give them any assistance, advice or help that we can.
