HC Deb 16 February 1973 vol 850 c444W
Dame Patricia Hornsby-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what regulations apply to the size and form of signposts on secondary roads in order that these may be visible to traffic at night.

Mr. Peyton

The size, colour and type of fingerpost direction signs are governed by the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 1964, which continue in force the relevant provisions of the previous, 1957, regulations. Such signs may be illuminated, by means of lighting or by the use of reflectors or reflecting material.
