HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 c165W
85. Mr. Box

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will introduce compulsory annual tests of roadworthiness for Commercial vehicles.

Mr. Marples

Goods vehicles under 30 cwt. unladen weight which are six years old or more already come within the scheme for annual roadworthiness tests. I am now considering what measures are desirable in relation to heavier vehicles. All goods vehicles are subject to inspection by my staff of vehicle examiners.
