§ Mr. Kirkwood
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he plans to give local authorities the required power to put down ramps in residential side streets to control traffic speeds; why the grant of these powers has been delayed; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ancram
A decision on the commencement of the road hump provisions in the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 will be made once more experience has been gained in the use of road humps in England and Wales. My right hon. and learned Friend has received no representations in favour of road humps from Scottish local authorities.
