Illumination of Radio On Off switch

Noticed the other day that the radio on off switch is not illuminated.
Can't remember if it was before.
Should it be?
Cheers

Re: MOT due soon?

All cars with MOT due after 30th March are being given a six months extension. Cars must be kept roadworthy during this period. I assume you will be able to tax online as normal.

My car is 2015 and don't think it had ever been up...
