§ Mr. Gwynoro Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what notification he has received from county authorities in Wales of their intention to pursue a bilingual road sign policy; and whether he will make a statement.201W
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
Since the Regulations were amended in April, 1970, to allow local authorities to erect certain bilingual traffic signs, Merioneth County Council have notified me of their intention to implement this policy. In addition the Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshire202W and Merioneth County Councils have asked that place names might be shown bilingually on directional signs.
I have this whole subject under consideration and hope to make a statement shortly.
