§ Mr. Porter
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to be able to introduce regulations to control the emission of spray from vehicles on the highways, especially in relation to heavy lorries.
§ Mr. David Howell
I am conscious that spray, particularly from heavy lorries, is a serious nuisance. There has been considerable progress recently in the development of methods to control spray and I am now looking urgently at how to carry this forward. It will be necessary to specify a technical standard on winch regulations can be based.
