§ 10. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is satisfied that the covering over of Automobile Association signposts on main roads, with brown paper, is a sufficient precaution against an invader?
§ The Minister of Transport (Sir John Reith)
I presume my hon. and gallant Friend has in mind a particular series of signs erected in Greater London. These signs have not been covered because they 1144 might have been of any service to the enemy. They have been provided for a special purpose, and the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis has issued instructions that, in order to avoid confusion, they should be temporarily covered until they are required.
