HC Deb 24 July 1970 vol 804 cc299-300W
Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce measures to ensure the security of divisible loads by controlling the height of such loads and by regulating the methods of containing loads in transit.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

Regulations already require in general terms that the load on a vehicle shall be so distributed, packed, and secured as not to cause danger. The possibility of a height limit is under consideration, but regulating methods of loading would not be practicable.
