HC Deb 22 February 1978 vol 944 cc648-9W
Mr. Spriggs

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what steps he is taking to reduce the numbers of road traffic accidents which involve heavy haulage vehicles.

Mr. Horam

The Transport Bill contains provisions for strengthening the control of overloading and bad maintenance. Other action under consideration includes the introduction of new requirements for braking to reduce the risks of jackknifing.
