§ Mr. Latham
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will request a senior representative of his east midland regional office to visit Croxton Kerrial, Leicestershire, to observe traffic conditions there and advise him on the desirability of reducing the speed limit on the A607 road to 30 mph.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
A senior representative of the east midland regional office has already visited Croxton Kerrial and given advice. Since then no accidents have occurred. A speed limit of 30 mph would not contribute to road safety.
