HC Deb 11 February 1992 vol 203 c422W
Mr. Summerson

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will introduce speed limits of 20 mph in areas immediately adjacent to schools.

Mr. Chope

The Road Traffic Act 1991 makes provision for variable speed limits. My Department will be mounting trials involving the setting of 20 mph speed limits outside schools at the times when children are arriving or leaving. These trials will provide a basis for guidance to local authorities on the establishment of such limits.
