HC Deb 21 June 1927 vol 207 c1682W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the road sign-boards in Stratford Broadway are so small that they are totally inadequate and give no assistance to motorists, and that many stop their vehicles in order to read the sign-posts, thereby causing congestion of traffic; and will he therefore take steps to see that adequate signposts are fixed indicating at this crossroad the way to Romford and Colchester on the one hand and Leytonstone and Cambridge on the other?

Colonel ASHLEY

The provision of adequate signs is a matter for the responsible highway authority whose approved expenditure for such purposes is eligible for assistance from the Road Fund. I will draw the attention of the West Ham Borough Council to the representations made by the hon. Member.
