Fire Engines

Volume 707: debated on Friday 6 February 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration they have given to requiring all fire engines to be in a colour visible at night and not in red. [HL1067]

No recent consideration has been given to requiring all fire engines to be in a colour other than red. The Department for Transport has given a temporary exemption from existing lighting regulations to permit the use of red retro-reflective markings on the side of fire engines and intends to amend legislation later this year to make this exemption permanent.
