The Department for Transport has had no discussions with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport about the size of boundary signs between England and Scotland.

The design and size of traffic signs, including those indicating a border, is regulated through the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016. It is for the relevant traffic authority to determine the size of signs having regard to the speed of approaching traffic, and they may do so without reference to the Department provided the design meets relevant legislation.
