§ Mr. John Mackay
asked the Minister of Transport if any special consideration will be given to vehicles based on the 460W Scottish Islands with regard to the tachograph regulation.
§ Mr. Fowler
No exemption is provided in the EEC tachograph regulation for vehicles based on these islands, and the United Kingdom cannot make such an exemption unilaterally. I am, however, considering what can be done within the regulation to deal with the special problems which implementation of the regulations will present to island-based vehicles.
