Speaking at a Debate just before the House rose for the Christmas recess, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu raised the question of using part of the St. Pancras Station site as a permanent museum to display the historic transport exhibits at present housed at Clapham, Swindon and York. In spite of support from Lord Robertson of Oakridge the suggestion was disposed of by Lord Shepherd, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, who said that the balance of advantage lies with York and, in reply to Lord Grimston of Westbury, that the Clapham and other railway exhibits would be brought together, at York. Lord Montagu then raised the matter of the 50 m.p.h. speed limit on part of the Winchester by-pass and he was supported by Lord Nugent of Guildford, who remarked on the confusing aspect of sporadic and ad hoc speed limits. Lord Shepherd firmly supported the speed limit referred to, and said that in respect of the 50 m.p.h. limit at Winchester, which Lord Montagu had pointed out was illogical in view of the freedom to travel at 70 m.p.h. on the roads leading to the by-pass, the A.A. agreed with the limit but that the R.A.C. dissented.
