The page describes draft lists of road numbers that were allocated by the MOT in 1921 / 22, before the official list was finally released.

2 zone

What became the A205, A207, A226, A235, A239 in the finalised list weren't allocated separate numbers - either due to being planned routes (A205, A239) or part of the A2 (A207/A226) and A22 (A235) with the planned bypass section becoming part of the major route in the final lists. The A254 and A276 became the A259 'Coast Road' (A254 number bumped up 5 for the added routes) with the B259 for the Class II section between Newhaven and Eastbourne - all B roads between B259 and B2019 were moved up one number.

3 Zone

The main changes in the A3xxs between this draft and the final list are the additions of the A315 and A316, and the removal of the draft A323. This means everything between the A317 and the A324 is off by two, while everything from the A325 is off by one.

4 Zone

Changes: the renumbering of the draft A407 to A403 and shifting A403-405 up one and making the A406 part of the A4. The A400x set was redone, partially due to some routes (A4000, A4001, A4003) now being in zone 3 with the move of the A4. The A307 was truncated back, with the A4000 taking over much of it, though part of it, together with the A4004 became a new A407. The A4006 was added, and the order changed for the other routes - not just a shift. Higher numbers shifted downwards by 2, though the A4018 was added so higher numbers only dropped by 1.

Scotland

Some draft routes only. Most notable things was that the A7 was originally to go along the border to Berwick, rather than Edinburgh thus removing the problem of running out of 3-digit numbers in zone 6 and having the border in the middle of the zone, with the associated difficulties. Another proposal was to dispense with zone 9 entirely, with it being a part of zone 8. The A9, when they decided that they might as well use the 9-zone numbers was to go via the Forth ferry, rather than Stirling.
