HC Deb 19 October 1966 vol 734 c49W
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.
