HC Deb 02 December 1959 vol 614 cc130-1W
75. Mrs. Butler

asked the Minister of Transport when he expects to be able to make statutory regulations to control the transport by road of radioactive materials.

Mr. Marples

The Government hope to publish draft regulations early next year.

76. Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Minister of Transport, when he expects the revised regulations for the transport of radioactive materials by rail to be published.

Mr. Marples

I understand that the British Transport Commission has almost completed its consultations with interested bodies, but it cannot yet say when the regulations will be available in their revised form. It is pressing ahead with the revision as quickly as possible.
