HC Deb 18 July 1923 vol 166 cc2309-10
63. Colonel GRETTON

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if there is any restriction upon the weights or sizes of vehicles used upon the public roads; and if it is proposed to limit the weight of vehicles so used, in view of the wear and tear to the public roads?

Colonel ASHLEY

There are numerous restrictions upon the weights and sizes of road vehicles laid down in the Locomotives and Motor Car Acts, and in the Roads Act and in the Orders made there-under. The restrictions are too detailed to be dealt with in answer to a question, but they are summarised on pages 7 to 14 of the Second Interim Report of the Committee on Taxation and Regulation of Road Vehicles, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
