HC Deb 30 April 1975 vol 891 c141W
34. Mr. Weetch

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he is satisfied with the degree of protection that exists for residents and other members of the general public in urban areas arising from the parking of tankers containing toxic or explosive substances.

Mr. Harold Walker

I am informed by the Health and Safety Commission that there has been consultation with industry, local authorities and the police on the question of the parking of vehicles carrying dangerous substances, with a view to proposing new regulations. The existing controls over vehicles carrying explosives, petrol and certain other inflammable liquids include restrictions on parking.
