§ 102. Mr. Callaghan
asked the Minister of Transport why he will not institute a 40 miles per hour speed limit between the Cardiff City boundary on the Newport Road and the existing 30 miles per hour limit, in view of the fact that the need for it has been admitted to the Cardiff City Council by the divisional road engineer.
§ Mr. Marples
This road is not a trunk road, and the order to impose a speed limit falls to be made by the city council, who have not yet applied for my consent to the making of an order. I have asked them to consider also raising a short length of the existing 30 miles per hour speed limit to 40 miles per hour.
