asked the Minister of Transport whether, in consultation with the military and police authorities, he can devise some form of warning sign, easily removed, which will enable motorists and other users of the road to have some previous notice of a road block often unseen beyond a distance of a few yards?

I agree with my hon. Friend's proposal. There are already warning signs in some places, and steps are being taken to provide them as quickly as possible wherever required.

Has my right hon. Friend ensured that local authorities use the same form of warning sign?

I am sorry that I cannot answer that point, but I quite realise the relevance of the suggestion, and I will have it considered.
