HC Deb 04 June 1930 vol 239 c2178W

asked the Minister of Transport the maximum permissible measurements and weight of motor vehicles now allowed on the roads; and what, steps are taken by his Department to ensure that the regulations are complied with?


I assume that the hon. Member refers only Lo motor cars and heavy motor cars as distinct from locomotives. The maximum limits of length, width and weight for such vehicles are prescribed under the various Orders governing the construction and use of motor cars which have been made from time to time under the Motor Car Acts, and I am sending him a short statement of their principal requirements. The enforcement of the regulations is a matter for the police authorities.
