HC Deb 08 July 1981 vol 8 c155W
Mr. David Young

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will enter into discussions with local authorities to ensure that grass cutting around roundabouts and road junctions is not made the subject of cutbacks to the detriment of public safety; and if he will request them to ensure that foliage which obscures road signs is properly cut.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Local authorities should be well aware of the need to ensure that roadside vegetation does not obstruct drivers' vision.
