§ Mr. Pargiter
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will make a statement in regard to the proposed regulations altering the maximum gross load from 24 to 28 tons for heavy duty bulk liquid vehicles; and whether he is aware that the delay in coming to a conclusion in regard to this matter is causing difficulties to manufacturers and operators.
§ Mr. Marples
While I am aware of the considerations to which the hon. Member refers, others, including safety considerations, have to be taken into account. I hope, however, before long to reach a decision on this subject.
