asked the Minister of Transport if he will now make a statement on the revocation of the wartime exemption as to speed limits.

I gave notice on 13th May in the London and Edinburgh Gazettes of my intention to revoke the Motor Vehicles (Variation of Speed Limits) Provisional Regulations, 1940. These regulations conferred upon service vehicles a general exemption from the speed limits imposed by the Road Traffic Act, 1930. The proposed regulations will restore the prewar position under which only certain specialised service vehicles were exempted.
