HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 cc962-3W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that lorry drivers complain that some local authorities do not renew the white lines and similar signs on the road surface and the kerb often enough; and as these are necessary after the black-out, especially in rural districts, will he call the attention of all local authorities to these complaints?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

The renewal of white lines has been handicapped of late because of weather conditions, but my officers are constantly impressing upon local authorities the importance of maintaining these and other aids to movement, and liberal grants for the purpose are available from public funds.
