HC Deb 20 December 1991 vol 201 c398W
Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will examine the feasibility of introducing a maximum speed limit for heavy goods vehicles.

Mr. Chope

Vehicle speed limits are already contained in the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. The speed limit for goods vehicles over 7.5 tonnes gross weight is 60 mph on motorways, 50 mph on dual carriageways and 40 mph on other roads, subject to any lower road speed limits.
