HC Deb 26 October 1960 vol 627 cc272-3W
Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the danger to oncoming traffic from overhanging loads from the rear of lorries carrying tree trunks and long tubes; and if he will take steps to compel drivers of such loads to have adequate indicators of the fact.

Mr. Marples

Proposals for new Regulations, which would require projecting loads to be adequately marked, and in many cases for advance notice of them to be given to the police, were circulated for comment to interested organisations in August.
