HC Deb 17 December 1959 vol 615 c262W
Mr. R. W. Elliott

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has now received the advice of the Departmental Committee on Road Safety with reference to an extension of 40 miles-perhour speed limits; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Marples

The Committee met this week and agreed on its report on the 40 m.p.h. speed-limit experiment in the London Traffic Area. I expect to receive it shortly, and when I have considered it in conjunction with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland I will make a further statement and lay the report before the House as required by the Road Traffic Act, 1956.
