HC Deb 28 February 1935 vol 298 c1278
69. Mr. JOEL

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the introduction of the 30 miles per hour speed limit in built-up areas next month, he proposes to issue for the information of motorists a statement as to how this speed limit will be enforced?


I have been asked to reply. The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis proposes, in good time before the coming into operation of the speed limit, to issue a notice to the public through the Press and the British Broadcasting Corporation explaining the methods of enforcement which the police intend to adopt with a view to securing compliance with the law. I am suggesting to chief officers of police outside London that they should take similar steps to inform the public in their respective police districts. I am at present in consultation with my hon. Friend the Minister of Transport on the question whether any further measure of publicity is desirable.
