Lamp-posts (Grants) (Hansard, 4 June 1951)
HC Deb 04 June 1951 vol 488 cc71-2W
99. Sir H. Williams

asked the Minister of Transport what grant has been made by his Department to the highway authorities in respect of the number plates which they have fixed to lamp-posts in their areas.

Mr. Barnes

When lamp-posts are numbered in a new or improved system of street lighting approved by me on a trunk road, the cost is included in the costs of the installation towards which I normally contribute 50 per cent. Otherwise, my Department makes no grant for this purpose.
