HC Deb 29 April 1969 vol 782 c215W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to expand public weighbridge facilities for heavy goods vehicles; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Marsh

Local authorities have power under the Weights and Measures Act to provide public weighbridges. I am not satisfied that in view of these powers it would be justifiable for me to establish and operate additional public weighbridges.
