§ 52. Mr. George Jeger
asked the Minister of Transport whether she is aware that a temporary speed restriction order in a residential area of Knottingley expires on 31st October; and whether she will now make this order permanent in the interests of road safety.
§ Mr. John Morris
My right hon. Friend understands that the exceptional circumstances which justified a temporary speed limit of 15 m.p.h. no longer obtain; she is therefore unwilling to approve an extension. The roads concerned are already permanently restricted to 30 m.p.h.
