HC Deb 29 June 1925 vol 185 c2039W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the fact that motorists passing through large towns in the provinces have great difficulty in finding their way through the same to the main roads owing to lack of signposts, and will he take this matter up with the various highway authorities for ihe purpose of getting them to erect suitable signposts directing traffic along the main roads through the principal towns?

Colonel ASHLEY

I share the hon. and gallant Member's anxiety that all important routes should be adequately sign-posted, and, thanks very largely to the financial assistance given by my Department, considerable progress has already been made in this direction. I shall continue, as in the past, to encourage local authorities to improve and extend the sign-posting in their areas.
