HC Deb 18 December 1963 vol 686 cc226-7W
Mr. Peter Emery

asked the Minister of Transport what further action he is considering to ensure that exceptionally wide, heavy or cumbersome loads carried by motor vehicles do not cause undue delay to the ordinary motorist.

Mr. Marples

Last year I made regulations which imposed new restrictions on the movement by road of abnormal loads. Under these regulations, a due balance is being kept between the needs of industry and the avoidance of undue delays to other traffic.
