To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the size of signs erected on inner-city developments promoting the Government's involvement; how many such signs have been erected; how much has been spent on erecting the signs; and for what purpose the signs have been erected.
§ Mr. Trippier
The Department provides two sizes of signs, 8 ft by 2 ft and 4 ft by 1 ft. Since November 1987, 4,452 signs have been produced at a cost of £15,204 of which 2,864 have been issued to local authorities and other recipients of the Department's financial assistance through the urban programme, derelict land grant, estate action and urban development grant/city grant. Records are not kept of the number and cost of signs erected.
