HC Deb 03 May 1978 vol 949 c154W
48. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he is planning to have discussions with Bedfordshire County Council about their proposals on advisory lorry routes and the workings of the Heavy Commercial Vehicles Act 1973; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Horam

We have no plans to have discussions of that kind. It is for the county council to decide how to regulate lorry traffic on roads for which it is the local highway authority, using the statutory powers available to it as necessary.
