Mr. Bob Brown:
Most regulatory signs were converted by the end of 1967 and the remainder will be converted by the end of this year. My right hon. Friend hopes soon to consult representative organisations about terminal dates for conversion of the other signs.
Would not the hon. Gentleman agree that it is essential in the interests of safety that signs should conform to a standard pattern as early as possible? Would he say something about the Minister's statement last week about the possibility of using kilometre road restriction signs and their cost?
