Location: 16 Stafford Place

Description: Leslie Hore-Belisha

Isaac Leslie Hore-Belisha, 1st Baron Hore-Belisha /ˈhɔər bəˈliːʃə/ PC (7 September 1893 16 February 1957) was a British Liberal, then National Liberal Member of Parliament (MP) and Cabinet Minister. He later joined the Conservative Party. He is remembered for his innovations in road transport and for being an alleged victim of anti-semitism.

Hore-Belisha's Road Traffic Act 1934 introduced a speed limit of 30 mph for motor cars in built-up areas.

ore-Belisha rewrote the Highway Code and was responsible for the introduction of two innovations which led to a dramatic drop in road accidents: the driving test and the Belisha beacon, named after him by the public.
