HC Deb 10 March 1936 vol 309 cc1965-6W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the confusion caused to road users by the lack of uniformity in road signs, he will state what steps he is taking, under his powers of Section 48 of the Road Traffic Act, to remedy this matter?


All new signs must conform with Regulations made under the Section to which the hon. Member refers unless they are specially authorised by me. Highway authorities have been urged to remove unsatisfactory or useless signs, but if the hon. Member will let me know of any case where signs are likely to cause confusion I will gladly have inquiries made.
