25. Mr. RUTHERFORD
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider the standardisation of notices of road repairs, and if these can be graded according to the amount of the highway not usable on that account?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I will readily consider whether some greater uniformity of practice can be secured, including any suggestions my hon. Friend may be good enough to make, although it will be recognised that contractors and statutory undertakers could not in any case be expected to scrap existing stocks without reasonable notice.
