§ 99. Mrs. Ganley
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has considered the recommendation of the Report on Export and Slaughter of Horses that heavy vehicles mileage per hour should be increased; and what action he proposes to take.
§ 101. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Transport if he has considered the particulars which have been sent to him 162W contained in a letter from the British Road Federation, Ltd., as to the speed limit of 20 miles per hour for heavy goods vehicles; and when he expects to be able to come to a decision on relaxing the present regulations.
§ Mr. Barnes
The letter referred to is a circular letter to local authorities, of which all hon. Members have been sent a copy, and makes no representations to me as Minister. I am familiar with the arguments it puts forward. I am not yet in a position to come to a final decision in this matter.
