Speed Limits

Volume 465: debated on Tuesday 23 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will list the locations of (a) existing 20 mph zones and (b) 20 mph zones under construction in England. (159430)

Local authorities are responsible for setting local speed limits and have had powers to introduce 20 mph speed limits and 20 mph zones without seeking the approval of the Secretary of State since 1999.

The Department does not therefore hold information on the locations of existing 20 mph zones or 20 mph zones under construction in England.
