§ Mr. Speller
asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of recent accidents causing loss of life and serious injury, he will arrange for a 30 miles per hour speed limit to be placed on the A39 through Fremington village, and arrange without delay for a survey to be carried out into the speed limits on the A39 between Barnstaple and Instow.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
I deeply regret the recent accidents at Fremington and am urgently reviewing the speed limit through the village. I will also consider whether a change in the speed limit on any other part of the A39 between Barnstaple and Instow would be justified.
