OVER 200 Members of Parliament are to support a motion in favour of a 30 m.p.h. speed limit for heavy goods vehicles, in the House of Commons, next Friday. The motion stands in the name of Mr. G. A. N. Hirst (Conservative, Shipley), and reads;." In the opinion of this House, the Minister of Transport should, by Order, forthwith raise thepermitted speed limit for heavy goods vehicles to 30 m.p.h."
The motion is being formally sponsored by the British Road Federation, and other associations are backing it. During a debate in the House of Lords, last week (reported on page 36), Lord Sandhurst also made a plea for a 30 m.p.h. speed limit for heavy goods vehicles.
