HC Deb 25 October 1906 vol 163 cc422-3

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Local Government board whether he has received, during the present year, any applications from local authorities to reduce the speed of motor cars in their areas to ten miles an hour; and, if so, will he give the names of the authorities who have made such application, and if he has sanctioned the same.


I have during the present year received applications of the kind referred to from three local authorities, viz., from the Carnarvonshire County Council as regards the roads in a part of the urban district of Llandudno, from the West Suffolk County Council as regards parts of roads in the urban district of Newmarket, and from the Essex County Council as regards the main roads in the urban district of Ilford. I have not felt able to comply with the first of these applications, at any rate to the extent proposed; the others are at present under consideration.
