§ 45. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will maintain the speed limit on A46 within Cheltenham until the local authority agrees that it be altered.
§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
If local administration is to amount to anything, is not this the sort of decision which should be taken locally and not by central authorities?
§ Mr. Peyton
A great deal of importance is attached to local opinion on the question of speed limits. But it is, I think, desirable that speed limits should be realistic, and in the experience of my Department they are better observed where there is some movement to make them a little more realistic.
