§ Captain BRASS
asked the Home Secretary whether he can inform the House how many of the 243 persons recently summoned for exceeding the speed limit on the Great West Road for speeds varying from 30 miles an hour to 62½ miles an hour were prosecuted for a speed in excess of 40 miles an hour, and how many for a speed under that figure; and whether any and, if so, how many were caught when the road surface was wet?
§ Captain HACKING
In 232 out of the 243 cases the speed was over 40 miles per hour. In 46 cases the road surface was wet.
