  Maybe
I disagree with some of what I see on some billboards. However I do not believe it is the council's role to arbitrate on taste and decency, or restrict freedom of speech, no matter how much we disagree with what is being said. We have a chief censor who is responsible for regulating any inappropriate content. There is also an industry body which self regulates the industry and oversees complaints. I will, however, attempt to act as an arbiter if hugely offensive displays are put up.
Andrew Williams
  Yes
I support regulation of public billboards to ensure that no offensive images are displayed and that billboards are suitable for general family viewing.
Colin Craig
  Yes
Yes I agree that billboards should be G-rated.
Simon Prast
  No
I am satisfied with laws already in place to monitor the content of public billboards. I do not think the "G-Rating" system is appropriate, workable or practical in the circumstances.
