HC Deb 29 November 1972 vol 847 c147W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will give an assurance that he will take no action regarding the increasing of axle weights and tonnage of lorries as proposed by the European Economic Community until such time as Parliament has passed judgment upon this issue.

Mr. Peyton

In view of the opportunity the House will have this evening to express its views—yes.
