HC Deb 12 February 2004 vol 417 cc1665-6W
Mr. Pickthall

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when guidelines for rural speed limits will be made available to local authorities. [154814]

Mr. Jamieson

Guidance to local authorities on the setting of local speed limits, including rural speed limits, already exists and is contained in Department of Transport Circular Roads 1/93. The Department plans to review and update the guidance, and will be consulting local authorities and other stakeholders on the matter in the next few months.
