HC Deb 26 June 1950 vol 476 cc169-70W
9. Mr. Nicholls

asked the Minister of Transport in view of the opposition expressed by police authorities and local residents to the removal of the speed limit from a portion of the Birmingham—Great Yarmouth trunk road at Longthorpe, Peterborough, if he will have the position again reviewed.

Mr. Barnes

No. The decision to remove the speed limit on this stretch of road was arrived at only recently and after careful consideration of the representations made by the police, the local authorities and local residents.
