HC Deb 16 June 1971 vol 819 cc84-5W
45. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he is proposing to reduce the delay of up to six weeks in the testing of commercial motor vehicles.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

Providing the statutory period of one month's notice is given only a very small minority of operators have to wait longer than a few days beyond the appointment date requested, but I should be glad to look into any specific case of delays which my hon. Friend may have in mind.
