HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 cc322-3W
93. Sir J. Vaughan-Morgan

asked the Minister of Transport whether she will consider a proposal to extend the 30 miles per hour speed limit in Smallfield, near Horley, Surrey, towards Copthorne, in view of the fact that this road is frequently in use by children moving between the divided buildings of the Smallfield County Primary School.

Mr. Carmichael

Any extension of the speed limit on this length of road is, in the first instance, the responsibility of the Surrey County Council. Should the Council decide formally to seek my right hon. Friend's consent to such an extension, she will, of course, carefully consider their proposal. I understand that they will be considering the matter shortly.
