§ Mr. Russell Johnston
asked the Minister of Transport what would be the estimated cost of free distribution of the booklet, "New Road Traffic Signs", detailing the new signs to be used on highways.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
On the basis of a house-to-house distribution through the Post Office, covering approximately 16½ million households, the cost would be in the region of £165,000. The booklet is already being issued free to 2½ million persons per annum, including new provisional licence holders, children taking the National Cycling Proficiency Test, trainees in the RAC/ACU motor cycle training scheme, and overseas visitors.
