§ Sir R. Russell
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drivers of light vans have been prosecuted for exceeding the speed limit of 40 miles per hour in the Metropolitan 439W Police district since the decision to increase the limit to 50 miles per hour was announced.
§ Mr. Sharples
Separate statistics for light vans are not available. Between 1st April, 1969 (shortly after the announcement referred to) and 30th June, 1970, proceedings were taken in 275 cases in respect of goods vehicles exceeding the limit.
