§ Mr. LECKIE
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the feeling in the country in favour of a speed limit in towns, he will put into force without further delay the speed limits as specified in the First Schedule to the Road Traffic Act, 1934?
§ Miss RATHBONE
asked the Minister of Transport at what date it is intended to bring into operation the proposed speed limit in built-up areas?
§ Mr. KNIGHT
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will now reimpose a speed limit in built-up areas?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I am formally asking local authorities to consider what roads in built-up areas should not be subject to the speed limit and what roads should be subject to the speed limit although they are not in built-up areas. I 'am also inviting their comments, through their representative organisations, on regulations and directions which I have drafted. I hope to be able to settle these matters by the New Year.
