HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c76W
54. Mr. Strauss

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the dissent expressed by four members of the Advisory Committee on Traffic Signs, who are professionally qualified to speak on aesthetic matters, against the shade of green proposed to form the background on all main road traffic signs, he will reconsider that Committee's recommendation on this point.

Mr. Marples

No. This was considered most carefully by the Committee in the light of the functional as well as the aesthetic aspects.
