HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 c199W
67. Mr. W. Fletcher

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider changing the regulations whereby certain classes of utility vehicles are limited to a maximum speed of 30 m.p.h., since an increase in this speed limit will not result in any diminution of road safety.

Mr. Barnes

No. I have so far found it impracticable to devise a definition which would enable these vehicles to be treated as a separate class or description for the purposes of Section 10 of the Road Traffic Act, 1930.
