HC Deb 04 February 1971 vol 810 c457W
Mr. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has any plans for amending the speed limits for commercial vehicles.

Mr. Peyton

I have today laid before Parliament regulations which would subject lorries over 3 tons unladen weight to a motorway speed limit of 60 m.p.h. and raise the limit on all purpose roads for vans not exceeding 30 cwt. unladen weight to 50 m.p.h.
