HC Deb 17 January 1968 vol 756 c571W
Mr. MacArthur

asked the Minister of Transport if she will exempt commercial vehicles based in Scotland from the new tax on lorries proposed in her White paper on the Transport of Freight.

Mr. Swingler:

No, but as my right hon. Friend said in the debate on the Transport Bill on 20th December, she is prepared to consider whether the effects of the abnormal loads charge could be mitigated on firms in development areas.
