§ Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Minister of Transport, what provision has been made in the recently circulated draft specification for tachographs for goods vehicles covered by quality licensing to differentiate between the running of an engine for road driving and its use, with the vehicle at rest, for driving ancillary equipment, such as for grain loading; and if he will give an assurance that provisions covering the driving of ancillary equipment will be included in his forthcoming regulations.
§ Mr. Marsh
We are consulting manufacturers separately on this point. Periods when the engine of a goods vehicle is used for operating ancillary equipment while the vehicle is at rest will not be counted towards driving time for the purposes of Clause 115 of the Transport Bill.
