HC Deb 21 July 1960 vol 627 c56W
Mr. Houghton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will instruct the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police to observe the speed of motor vehicles, including public transport, in Whitehall and on Millbank, especially after dark, and to take any necessary steps to enforce the law.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Enforcement of the law is the responsibility of the Commissioner and must be left to him. He informs me that appropriate action is taken when offences come to notice.
