Councillors are considering turning off some street lights in Stockport, Greater Manchester, so they can save money.
The idea has been condemned by the local MP, Ann Coffey, who believes it would have a huge impact on safety and crime.
If the council failed to provide such basic services they should "turn the lights out in the town hall and go home," she said.
Sue Derbyshire, Stockport's executive member for transport, said the plan would only go ahead if approved after consultation with residents.
