Beware Bulb Snoopers

Public told to snoop on lightbulb law breakers - Telegraph
From September 1, it will be illegal to import conventional pearl or frosted bulbs of any shape or wattage. Traditional incandescent bulbs of 100 watts will also be banned under European law aimed at reducing energy bills and carbon dioxide emissions...

A Defra spokesman said: ''The public could tip off trading standards if they know someone to be illegally importing 100W or frosted light bulbs, just as they would if they found dangerous toys or appliances.
I shall be out there snooping for bulb criminals - but only if I'm paid.
