HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 cc1329-30W
Captain Strickland

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the case of the re-weighing of commercial goods vehicles to detect any increase of weight when used in a different area from that in which they are registered, such re-weighing only takes place after a request from the original local licensing authority, or is left to the discretion of the authority in the area in which such vehicle is operating at the time?

Captain Wallace

As I indicated in the reply which I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend on the 28th June, the initiative lies with the licensing authority with whom the vehicle is registered.
