HC Deb 17 June 1963 vol 679 c22W
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.
