§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is aware of the large number of oil and paraffin lorries which are untaxed, uninsured, with defective brakes and tyres and leaking oil making retail deliveries to households; and whether he will take action to ensure that such vehicles are periodically checked and inspected on a similar basis to the London taxis.
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
