§ Mr. Norman Fowler
Is it not a fact that there is no evidence of substantial fuel saving? Given that the limits cause confusion to the motorist and enforcement difficulties for the police, why not just drop them?
§ Mr. Marks
We shall examine all the available evidence when the present Order expires on 30th November. As for the criticisms of the difficulties of enforcement, I am aware that the complaints which reach hon. Members are in the main from people who have exceeded the limits and had their licences endorsed as a result.
§ Mr. Lipton
Has my hon. Friend taken note of recent observations by the Assistant Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis that speed limits should be increased?
