§ Mr. Crawford
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the number of international road haulage permits issued by the International Road Freight Office to English and Scottish hauliers, respectively, in 1975; and what is the estimated number for 1976.
§ Mr. Marks
Information about the number of permits issued to hauliers whose registered offices are in particular 123W parts of the United Kingdom could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. Hauliers may, of course, use permits from any base in the United Kingdom irrespective of the address from which application was made.
