HC Deb 09 November 1982 vol 31 cc139-40W
Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what recent representations he has received regarding mandatory lorry routes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eyre

The issue of lorry routeing has been extensively discussed furing the consultations following the publication of the Armitage report. My right hon. Friend has made it clear that he wants local authorities to make greater use of their wide powers to control the routes used by heavy lorries.
