HC Deb 07 February 1962 vol 653 c61W
50. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport what regulations he now has under consideration relating to the speed limit, outside built-up areas, of commercial vehicles not drawing trailers.

Mr. Hay

We circulated to interested bodies last week for comment proposals for raising the speed limit on most classes of vehicles. The main proposal is that outside built-up areas goods vehicles not drawing trailers should, like buses, be allowed to travel at up to 40 m.p.h.
