HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 cc293-4W
Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment to what extent entry into the European Economic Community will affect road transport weight regulations in the United Kingdom; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Peyton

Road transport weight regulations have not been harmonised in the European Economic Community. The effect of entry into the Community on British regulations will depend on what standard, if any, has been adopted by the Community.
