HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 c31W
9. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is aware of the congestion that is caused by the movement of large pieces of plant and machinery on the roads at peak periods of traffic; and what steps are being taken to prevent such movement.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Yes. Under existing regulations vehicles of unusual weight or width are subject to a considerable degree of control. I am going into the possibility of tightening this up.
