HC Deb 07 March 1968 vol 760 c152W
Q9. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Prime Minister whether he will transfer responsibility for the control of transportation of dangerous substances by road from the Home Office to the Ministry of Transport.

The Prime Minister

The present division of responsibilities within central Government for the control of dangerous substances is being comprehensively reviewed and any changes which may result will be reported to the House in due course. The matter is, however, complicated and the review is bound to take some time.
