HC Deb 01 December 1930 vol 245 cc1797-8
71. Mr. DAY

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he proposes to make any reduction in the present speed limits enforced in the Royal parks?


I am hopeful that the rigorous enforcement of the existing Regulations will have the effect of keeping the speed of motor traffic in the Royal parks within reasonable bounds, but, if experience should prove otherwise, I may be compelled to consider a reduction in the present limit.

Lieut.-Colonel MOORE

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that it is not rigorously enforced?


We are doing our best, and we hope that the ladies and gentlemen who drive high-speed ears will have a little regard for the pedestrians and especially the children.
