asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the question of road restriction signs being so designed as to give the de-restricting indication on the reverse thereof; what saving of public funds would accrue by the adoption of such a sign; and whether he will give consideration to this proposal?
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that in the opinion of many motorists the present sign is too inconspicuous and will he consider erecting a sign which can be more easily seen?
Was there not a decision on the part of the Ministry that they would look into the question of marking the lamp posts throughout the length of a road which is de-restricted?
No, Sir, I do not think that that is the case. Certain inconveniences would attach to that course which it would take too long to explain to the House in answer to a question.
