HC Deb 04 December 1963 vol 685 c181W
54. Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Minister of Transport if he has yet decided on a revision of the speed limits affecting all roads in England and Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Marples

I decided more than two years ago that a review of speed limits on roads was necessary. Since then speed limits on trunk roads have been brought up to date, as hon. Members may see from my annual report on roads in England and Wales. A good deal of progress has been made with other roads, but some local authorities have still to complete their review.
