HC Deb 23 February 1960 vol 618 c40W
74. Sir P. Agnew

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet approved new regulations to control the permitted speed of vessels using the River Severn navigation and what the new maximum speed allowed will be.

Mr. Marples

Revised regulations for navigation on the River Severn, to modify the present speed limit, have been drafted by the British Transport Commission as navigation authority. They are at present being considered by the various bodies interested. When their comments have been received and considered I will publish the byelaws in draft.
