§ 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.
