Mr Barnard asked the Minister for Shipping and Transport, upon notice:

Will the Government support at the next meeting of the Australian Transport Advisory Council the system of road signs laid down by the United Nations Convention on Road Signs and Signals or the modified system recommended by the Victorian Road Safety and Traffic Authority.


Mr Nixon - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Australian Transport Advisory Council's Advisory Committee on Road User Performance and Traffic Codes is currently examining the likely, implications which the United Nations Convention on Road Signs and Signals would have for Australia. This committee is also examining in this context a draft manual which is being prepared by the Australian Committee on Road Devices (a committee set up by State engineering and road traffic authorities). Any action taken by the Australian Transport Advisory Council will be in the light of the report and recommendations of its Advisory Committee.
