HC Deb 11 December 1931 vol 260 cc2233-4W

asked the Minister of Transport, if before the House rises, and in view of the fact that the police are at present prosecuting motor-coach drivers for travelling between 30 and 35 miles per hour, he will state when he proposes to introduce any increases in the speed limit as affecting these vehicles?


A speed limit of 30 miles an hour was fixed for motor coaches in the Road Traffic Act, 1930. I have at present under consideration the question of the simplification and amendment of the Schedule of maximum speeds in certain respects, but I have reached no decision. Any amendment of the Schedule would require to be ratified by Parliament.
