HC Deb 31 July 1935 vol 304 cc2640-1
28. Mr. GUY

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will endeavour to pronounce his decision without delay on the question of de-restriction of certain sections of road in Edinburgh following the local inquiry which was held on 8th July?


asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that most of the 30-miles-perhour speed limit signs around Edinburgh have been erected several miles beyond the built-up area in such a way as to constitute a provocation to motorists to disregard them; and whether he will approach the local authority with a view to securing a de-restriction of part of this area?


As a result of representations made to me, I recognised that there was cause for inquiry into the application of the 30-miles-per-hour speed limit to certain roads in Edinburgh, and such an inquiry was held on 8th July. I have now received the report of the inspector who held the inquiry. One or two matters remain to be clarified, and I shall give my decision without delay.
