HC Deb 25 June 1980 vol 987 cc229-30W
55. Mr. Prescott

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is his intention to introduce legislation for private finan cial holdings in heavy goods vehicles testing stations, in a form which could enable any or all of the stations to be sold or leased during the financial year 1981–82

Mr. Fowler

I am still considering detailed proposals for involving the private sector in the testing of heavy goods vehicles. I have not yet decided the precise nature or the timing of changes to the present system.
