HC Deb 15 October 1945 vol 414 cc679-80
41. Captain Sir Peter Macdonald

asked the Minister of War Transport when it is intended to rescind Regulation 73B, in so far as it prohibits the carriage of goods on roads in mechanically-propelled vehicles over a distance of more than 60 miles without official approval.

Mr. Barnes

This Regulation must be retained so long as the Road Haulage Organisation continues.

Sir P. Macdonald

For how long are these unnecessary restrictions to be maintained?

Mr. Barnes

At the moment I am not in a position to give the hon. and gallant Gentleman any date.

Mr. De la Bère

How long are we to endure this?
