HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c37W
22. Mr. Simon Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has any proposals to tighten the regulations covering vehicles which transport dangerous materials.

Mrs. Chalker

The transport of dangerous materials in bulk is covered by regulations made in 1981 which cover the construction of the vehicles, their labelling, and the training of drivers. The Health and Safety Commission hopes to publish early next year proposals to apply similar controls to the transport of dangerous substances in packages.
