HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 c294W
Mr. Bray

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will extend the Road Traffic Regulations currently applicable to the operation of heavy goods vehicles to all comparable vehicles of foreign registration whenever used on British roads.

Mr. Peyton

Such vehicles already have to comply with all statutory provisions currently in force, but, there are practical difficulties of enforcement. On this point I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow, East (Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson) on 11th May, 1971.—[Vol. 817. c. 89–90.]
