HC Deb 04 March 1936 vol 309 c1381
55. Mr. TURTON

asked the Minister of Transport in respect of how many lengths of road in each county he has received applications for his approval of orders made by county councils under Section 1 (4) (a) of the Road Traffic Act, 1934, to make a speed limit of 30 miles per hour operative, despite the absence of a system of street lighting; and in how many cases has he failed to give his approval?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Hore-Belisha)

I will send my hon. Friend the information he requires.


Do the figures satisfy the right hon. Gentleman that the intention of Parliament is being carried out and that the inhabitants of villages are being protected?


Yes, Sir.
