HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c71W
60. Mr. Webster

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take steps to improve the weight-power ratio of road-using vehicles.

Mr. Galbraith

We have set up a Departmental Committee to develop a scheme to prescribe maximum permissible gross weights for goods vehicles. The fixing of a minimum power-weight ratio will be considered in this connection.
