HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 c129W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has to advise road authorities in Wales to use the correct forms of Welsh place-names on road signs where this is not already their practice.

Mr. George Thomas

Any change in the spelling of a place name is a matter in the first instance for the local authority. When a change has been proposed and I have accepted it, existing road signs will be replaced as and when practicable. I have no plans to give highway authorities advice on the correct forms of place names.
