§ 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.
