HC Deb 05 December 1979 vol 975 cc241-2W
42. Mr. Thompson

asked the Minister of Transport when he plans to lay before Parliament regulations concerning the tachograph requirement in heavy vehicles.

Mr. Bevan

asked the Minister of Transport when he proposes to lay the regulations concerning tachographs before the House.

Mr. Fowler

The Passenger and Goods Vehicles (Recording Equipment) Regulations 1979 were laid before Parliament in draft on 29 November.

51. Mr. Hawksley

asked the Minister of Transport what consultations he has undertaken on the introduction of tachographs.

Mr. Fowler

I have had meetings with the main employers' organisations in the road transport field, with the five trades unions which have sizeable driver mem- bership, and with the European Commission. At the end of September draft implementing regulations were issued for consultation with interested parties, and the revised draft which I laid before Parliament on 29 November takes account of the comments made.
