To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps the Government is taking to monitor speed limits and ensure that they are appropriate.
Answer (Jesse Norman)
The Government does not monitor speed limits, as traffic authorities set local speed limits in situations where local needs and conditions suggest a speed limit which is lower than the national speed limit. The Department has issued guidance to local highway authorities on setting local speed limits, which can be viewed online at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/setting-local-speed-limits
