HC Deb 18 April 1951 vol 486 cc175-6W
Sir P. Macdonald

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning whether, with a view to avoiding unnecessary applications to local authorities, he will take steps, when next amending the advertisement regulations, to permit hotels under certain conditions to place two advertisements on each of their road frontages; to place their frontage signs more than 12 or 15 feet above ground level where to do otherwise would cut across their ground floor front windows; and also to use advertisements more than 12 feet square if they are more than a certain distance from the nearest highway.

Mr. Dalton

No. I am not prepared to diminish the powers and responsibilities of the local authorities in this field.
