§ Mr. Iain Mills
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he is satisfied with the level of expenditure on publicising the new construction and use regulations on tyre tread depths; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Yes. The tyre industry itself has publicised the effect of these regulations, particularly on private motorists. In addition the Department has issued a poster aimed at lorry and bus operators and has supplied publicity material in the form of feature articles and radio fillers.
