HC Deb 18 January 1991 vol 183 c616W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he has estimated the cost and if he has plans to provide additional finance to enable local authorities to introduce 20 mph speed limit zones in accordance with his Department's recent guidelines.

Mr. Chope

We estimate that a 20 mph speed limit zone can be introduced for as little as £50,000. Schemes are eligible for transport supplementary grant if they have a significant casualty reduction potential and can therefore be considered to be a local safety scheme. Over £31 million has been earmarked for local safety schemes within the minor works allocation of the 1991–92 TSG settlement.
