Mr. Lewis

44, 45 and 49. asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation (1) whether, in view of the number of accidents that have occurred in Manor Road, West Ham, E.15, he will cause an investigation to be made for the purpose of ascertaining what action can be taken to overcome the danger to children, old-age pensioners and others who are compelled to use this road;

(2) if his attention has been called to the need for a speed limit and greater safety precautions at Manor Road. West Ham, E.15; and what action he proposes to take;

(3) whether he has considered the petition which has been sent to him, signed by more than a thousand residents in the vicinity of Manor Road, West Ham, E.15, demanding greater road safety measures in this area, including a speed limit and safety rails; and whether he will adopt these suggestions forthwith.

Mr. Molson

This road is already subject to a 30 m.p.h. speed limit. We have just received the petition to which the hon. Member refers, and I will investigate the traffic conditions in the area and write to the hon. Member.
