asked the Minister of Transport whether he has any proposals to give more decision-making powers to local highway authorities to determine applications for speed restrictions and pedestrian crossings on non-trunk roads.

Speed restrictions on local roads need consent only if the road is a principal road or a limit under 30 mph is proposed. I envisage no change here.
