asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will now consider providing a system, on a national basis, of sign-posting the amenities available, such as hotels, garages and cafes, in towns and villages by-passed by main road improvements; and whether he will discuss with motoring organisations a code of signs which would represent these amenities.

It is not for me to provide a system of direction signs to facilities in by-passed towns and villages, and in view of my appellate jurisdiction under the Control of Advertisements Regulations I do not think I ought to initiate discussions on a code of signs.
