HC Deb 31 May 1905 vol 147 c318

To ask the President of the Local Government Board how many local authorities have caused to be set up sign posts within their areas denoting dangerous corners, cross roads, and precipitous places, pursuant to Section 2 of Clause 10 of the Motor-Car Act of 1903; and what steps the Local Government Board has taken to secure the observance of that section.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The Local Government Board issued circulars calling the attention of the local authorities to the enactment referred to, and stated that it appeared to them that certain symbols which had been suggested for the sign posts by the County Councils Association and the Municipal Corporations Associations might conveniently be adopted. The Act does not require the local authorities to report their action in this matter to the Board, and I am not able to say how many of them have caused sign posts to be set up.
