HC Deb 29 April 1958 vol 587 cc174-5
22. Sir W. Anstruther-Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent he proposes to introduce 40 miles-per-hour speed restrictions; and whether he has yet selected suitable stretches of road.

Mr. Maclay

The provisions in the Road Traffic Act, 1956, enabling a 40 m.p.h. speed limit to be imposed outside the London Traffic Area cannot come into operation until a report has been made to Parliament on its experimental use in that area.
