HC Deb 26 June 1974 vol 875 cc475-6W
Mr. Tyler

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will give instructions that no military convoy should be driven on a major holiday route at peak traffic times during summer weekends unless the appropriate chief constable has been satisfied that there is no practicable alternative time or route.

Mr. William Rodgers

Departmental instructions already recognise the problems of congestion on these routes at these times and provide for full consultation with chief constables and appropriate liaison with other authorities.
