While Greg's explanation certainly is a charming one, Jim's explanation is closer to the truth.  In fact it is present to satisfy a US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requirement to illuminate the Hazard switch.  I've seen a copy of the regulation, courtesy of Jensen owner Bill Spohn ( ).

If memory serves (and assuming that I've read the parts list correctly), for European LHD cars the hole was closed off with a small plastic plug, and is not present at all in RHD cars.
