HC Deb 31 January 1973 vol 849 cc391-2W
Mr. Marks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the names of the firms to whom the 99 Community multilateral vehicle licences granted to the United Kingdom have been issued; and on what basis they were allocated.

Mr. Peyton

These authorisations were allocated to those applicants who provided the best evidence of being able to make intensive use of them for journeys between Member States. I am writing to the hon. Member about the first part of his Question.

Mr. Mulley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he proposes to take to obtain a proper allocation of operating permits for British road haulage firms within the EEC; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peyton

I would refer the right hon. Member to the answer given to a similar question to the right hon. Member for Battersea, North (Mr. Jay) on 24th January.—[Vol. 849, c.156.]
