asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has reviewed the policy on motorway lighting following the recommendations of the House of Commons Transport Committee on road safety.

The House of Commons Select Committee on Transport will be consulted along with the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Traffic Safety, the British Parliamentary Lighting Group and bodies representing road users, local authority, lighting industry, environmental interests and professional institutions.
