HC Deb 06 August 1976 vol 916 c1185W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now remove the lower speed limits introduced as fuel economy measures.

Dr. Gilbert

The order imposing the 60 and 50 mph temporary speed limits expires on 30th November. The decision whether to renew it will take account of all relevant factors, including the results of the recent survey of the level of observance on both single and dual-carriageway roads.
