§ 50. Sir JOHN WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Minister of Transport how many interviews his Department has had with those firms of heavy haulage contractors who are suffering under the regulations of the Road Traffic Act; and whether it is his intention, as a result of the representations made to him, to promote an amendment to the Act so as to meet the difficulties which have been pointed out to him?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Captain Austin Hudson)
If, as I assume, my hon. Friend refers to the Orders made under the Road Traffic Act, 1930, with regard to the movement of abnormal loads by road, this is a matter which affects not only haulage contractors but Highway and Bridge Authorities and the Police. Bodies representing all these interests have been consulted and as a result my right hon. Friend proposes to amend the Orders in question.
§ Sir J. WARDLAW-MILNE
In expressing my gratitude to my hon. Friend, may I ask whether these Amendments can be made without delay?
§ Captain HUDSON
A draft Order will shortly be circulated to the organisations interested for their comments on it.
