DAYLIGHT LAMP would fit, but I can't see the connection with the clue yet.

No, it's from a puzzle sheet rather than a crossword. Think you could be right with Aluminum Lamp though, looked them up and they're predominantly the Victorian style street lamps, which raise the bulbs up high from the ground. You can get indoor versions... seems a bit weak though. And it's a UK quiz, so your Aluminum's got an extra 'i' over here - Aluminium! That said it the clues could have originated from an American source.

How about: Standard Lamp

a tall electric lamp that has a shade and stands on a base.

Average becomes Standard, light becomes lamp? Just not happy with the UK version of Aluminum...!
