HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 cc393-4W
Mr. Normanton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received from international transport operators, T.I.R., as a result of his regulations limiting the gross vehicle weights to 32 tons.

Mr. Peyton

Two firms operating vehicles internationally under the T.I.R. scheme have made representations for a higher limit which they claim would enable them to compete more effectively with continental operators.
