Mr. John Ellis

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what special regulations are in force governing the transport of steel coil by road vehicles.

Mr. Horam

No special regulations exist, but the general requirements of Regulation 90 of the Motor Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1973 apply. Advice on such loads is included in the Department's Code of Practice on the Safety of Loads on Vehicles.

* It is fairly general for port authorities to include in their enabling legislation provisions for the members to receive fees, allowances and/or expenses, but not in all cases. It is for each individual authority to decide what form the remuneration should take, and such remuneration is met by the authority from its own revenue.
