§ Mr. Pym
Discussions have already begun with the local authorities concerned on all aspects of the basing decision including the implications for the road system. I do not expect significant difficulty in the use of existing roads by the missile transporters. Any specific improvements which may be required will, of course, be a matter for my center hon. Friend the Minister of Transport.
§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of Statae for Defence if he intends to seek powers to exempt from the provisions of the Road Traffic Acts vehicles carrying cruise missiles during practice alerts and also during real alerts.
