HC Deb 07 July 1998 vol 315 cc462-3W
38. Mr. Jim Murphy

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what representations he has received on the advantages of reducing the speed limits in and around built-up areas, with particular reference to areas close to schools. [47660]

Dr. Strang

I receive a considerable number of letters from people seeking a reduction in the 30 mph urban speed limit particularly near schools. We have announced proposals for local authorities to decide 20 mph limits for themselves. Consultation on the details ended on 30 June.
