§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether his own personal authorisation is necessary for every bilingual parking sign that is to be erected by a highway authority or whether he is prepared to give blanket authorisation for certain classes of signs.
§ Mr. Barry Jones
Two bilingual parking informatory signs are prescribed by the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 1975. Other bilingual parking signs require authorisation on my right hon. and learned Friend's behalf. Blanket authorisation cannot be given except by Regulations.
