asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in view of the fact that reflectors are now compulsory on all cars and that many are allowed to remain on the highway at night without additional lights and that no serious difficulties have been experienced, he will take steps to permit all cars to do so provided that they are not left in positions considered by the police as unsuitable for such purpose.

I am going into this question, but I have nothing that I can say about it today.

In view of the fact that there is only about 5 per cent. of the traffic on the roads at night as compared with daytime, and of the very great expense and inconvenience to motorists in having to purchase batteries and recharge them, will the Minister give the matter immediate and sympathetic consideration?

Could the right hon. Gentleman circulate as a White Paper the number of things which he is going into and upon which he has not yet reached a decision?

It would be very much shorter than a list of those of the right hon. Gentleman after six years of his Administration.
