HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc154-5W
91. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the successful operation of highway code provisions in some 35 States in the United States of America to the effect that a vehicle shall not be driven at such a low speed as to impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, whether he will now introduce a minimum speed limit on all clearways.

Mr. Marples

I am not at present satisfied that the imposition of a minimum speed limit on clearways would be in the interests of road safety, but I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind.
