HC Deb 11 February 1941 vol 368 cc1232-3W
Mr. Lunn

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will institute a speed limit for all motor vehicles during black-out hours, of not more than 15 miles an hour, in order to reduce the loss of life and limb on the roads?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

No, Sir. I do not think that the step suggested would have an appreciable result in reducing accidents and it would, in so far as it could be enforced, have a hampering effect on the war effort.
