asked the Minister of Transport how many orders for a speed limit have been made under Section 1 (4) (a) on roads without a system of street lighting by local authorities during 1951; and how many such orders have received his consent.
52 such orders were made with my right hon. Friend's consent under Section 1 (4) (a) of the Road Traffic Act, 1934, as the result of applications submitted by local authorities in 1951. Thirty-eight other such orders were proposed to be made by local authorities last year, but did not receive the necessary consent.
