HC Deb 19 June 1968 vol 766 c138W
22. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Transport what are the provisions under his regulations which enable local authorities to force contractors to use the authorised signs as laid down in the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 1964 in conjunction with road works.

Mr. Bob Brown

None. It is for highway authorities to include in their contracts a clause requiring the signing of the works to comply with their directions.
