§ Mr. Hooson
asked the Secretary of State for Wales when the Joint Marketing Panel of the Narrow Gauge Railways of Wales first approached his office with a view to its approving a standard direction sign for all narrow gauge railways in Wales; what representatives have since been made to his Department on the matter; and what decision he has reached.
§ Mr. Barry Jones
We have not been directly approached by this body but representations have been made on their behalf by the Wales Tourist Board and hon. Members. Consideration is being given to the introduction of directional signs in suitable circumstances and advice to highway authorities will be issued shortly.
