asked the Minister of Transport whether he will investigate the need for safety and speed limit signs in the parishes of Easton-in-Gordans and Hutton, in view of the delay on the part of the Somerset County Council in meeting the requests of the local inhabitants.

My right hon. Friend is considering the application for a speed limit in the parish of Hutton and hopes shortly to be in a position to announce his decision. Neither the county council nor my Department is aware of any proposal for an additional speed limit in the parish of Easton-in-Gordano, but a short length of road B.3124 in the village is subject to a speed limit under the county of Somerset (No. 2) Order, 1936. If the hon. Member would like to send further particulars, the matter will be looked into again.
