§ Mr. Greg Knight
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has any plans to review maximum speed limits on public roads; and, in particular, on motorways; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
I have no evidence to suggest that the current national maximum speed limits should be changed, either for all-purpose roads or motorways. However, the results of a national speed survey which was commissioned during the summer will be available in a few months, when all the evidence collected will be considered very carefully.
