34. The expert from India proposed making optional the fitment of front position lamps (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2019/18). The experts from France, Germany and the Netherlands were not in a position to support the proposal. The expert from India invited GRE to consider only the modification to paragraph 5.10. in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2019/18. Following a brief exchange of views, GRE invited the expert from India to submit a separate document on the issue.
