HC Deb 01 July 1920 vol 131 cc688-9W
Major GLYN

asked the Minister of Transport whether there is any power belonging to the Ministry of Transport, the Home Office, or other Government Department to limit the size of public vehicles as to length and breadth, or to restrict the use of vehicles beyond certain dimensions using public highways of a narrow and winding character?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given on 21st June to the hon. Member for Acton (Sir H. Brittain), of which I am sending him a copy. Beyond the general powers indicated in that answer, no Government Department has at present any means of restricting the size and weight of vehicles making use of public highways of a narrow and winding character.
