§ Mr. Mitchison
asked the Minister of Transport when the Northamptonshire County Council proposed to him that an order should be made to extend for a distance of 220 yards the existing speed limit on Moulton Lane, Boughton; whether he is aware of the local residents' opinion that there should be an extension; and whether he will reconsider his refusal in the interests of road safety.
§ Mr. Marples
In May, 1961, and in September, 1962. I am aware that some local residents desire an extension of the speed limit; but I do not consider that the interests of road safety would be served by the extension of a 30 miles per hour speed limit in the conditions obtaining on this road.
