HC Deb 05 December 1973 vol 865 cc381-2W
29. Sir D. Walker-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is aware of the difficulty experienced by some local authorities in obtaining for their refuse vehicles drivers with the requisite heavy goods vehicle licence; and if he will view the situation in order to modify those requirements so far as is necessary to ease the difficulties.

Mr. Peyton

I would not on road safety grounds be willing to modify driver licensing requirements.
