§ 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 1330W 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.
