HC Deb 23 May 1985 vol 79 cc531-2W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether his Department is monitoring the use of vehicle speed governors such as the Lucas road speed limiter; and whether he is considering making their use mandatory on coaches and lorries.

Mrs. Chalker

As the hon. Member is aware the House of Commons Transport Committee, in its report on road safety, recommended that the development of speed limiters should be monitored closely with the possibility of mandatory fitment in due course. We shall be responding to the report shortly.
