HC Deb 07 December 1977 vol 940 c723W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what effect the EEC regulations on drivers' hours will have on road haulage costs in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. William Rodgers,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 5th December 1977; Vol. 940, c. 502], gave the following information:

The effect on costs cannot easily be quantified, but the staged programme of implementation of Regulation 543/69 over three years from 1st January 1978 is being negotiated with the needs of remote areas of Scotland and other parts of the United Kingdom very much in mind.
