HC Deb 26 October 1976 vol 918 cc166-7W
Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many representations he has received relating to the Temporary Speed Limit Order 1974; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Horam

Hon. Members have forwarded 75 constituents' letters and the Department have answered 100 other letters from members of the public. A recent campaign by a motoring magazine prompted some 750 letters on stock lines. My hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Energy—the hon. Member for Whitehaven (Dr. Cunningham)—told the House on 21st October that the Government intend to consult representative organisations on the future of fuel-saving national limits. In the meantime the present limits are to be renewed until 31st May 1977.
