HC Deb 09 February 1966 vol 724 c76W
Sir Clive Bossom

asked the Minister of Transport whether she will publish in concise form all the information available as to a direct relationship between speed and road safety.

Mr. John Morris

A great deal of information on this subject has already been published; I would refer the hon. Member particularly to Chapter 6 of the Road Research Laboratory's book "Research on Road Safety" which contains a comprehensive survey of the effect of speed limits on accidents. The possibility of publishing a brief study of the most important material will, however, be considered.

Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport if she will state her plans for regulating the speeds of motorists on Great Britain's roads.

Mr. John Morris

The Road Research Laboratory are giving special attention to this matter. It is also under consideration by the National Road Safety Advisory Council. We are not yet able to make a general statement about future plans.
