HC Deb 04 May 1966 vol 727 c1606
15. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Minister of Transport whether she will state her policy concerning the future of the temporary 70 miles per hour limit on motorways.

Mrs. Castle

This is not yet possible. I shall be making an announcement towards the end of May.

Sir G. Nabarro

Will the right hon. Lady bear in mind that the last time this matter was debated was not on an affirmative Resolution from her Ministry, with the result that it was impossible for the House to express an opinion by a vote on this very important matter? Will she next time lay an Order so that we can all vote on this contentious matter?

Mrs. Castle

If I wanted to extend the experiment still further after 15th June, I would have to lay an Order and it would be possible for the House to pray against it.
