HC Deb 01 December 1937 vol 329 cc2072-3
64. Mr. Crowder

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has any statement to make regarding the imposition of a 30 miles-per-hour speed limit on the roads known as Falloden Way and Lyttleton Road, in the Hampstead Garden Suburb area?

65. Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has considered a report from the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee regarding the dangers to road users in Falloden Way, East Finchley; and will he, as an emergency safety measure, immediately reimpose the speed limit on this residential road?

Mr. Burgin

Upon receipt of a recommendation from the London Traffic Advisory Committee I have decided to give notice forthwith of my intention to introduce the speed limit of 30 miles per hour in Falloden Way between Greenhalgh Walk and Brookland Rise—a distance of about half a mile.

Mr. Crowder

Will my right hon. Friend consider making arrangements with the Commissioner of Police to have a police car on these roads for the next few weeks to see whether the speed limit is observed, and also to report upon the altered condition?

Mr. Leach

Will the Minister, in view of the exceedingly favourable answer which he has just given, now look into the question of those authorities who have been refused the right to restrict their roads?
