HC Deb 11 July 2002 vol 388 c1116W
Mr. Dhanda

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to replace miles with kilometres on traffic signs used to indicate speed limits and distances. [69926]

Mr. Jamieson

Although many drivers are familiar with metric units, it would not be appropriate to fix a date for converting speed limit and distance signs while there is still likely to be a significant proportion of drivers for whom the change could be potentially confusing.
