HC Deb 03 May 1983 vol 42 c17W
Mr. Wardell

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will publish in the Official Report the sums of money the Government allocated during each of the last three years, and are allocating in the current year, towards research into developing a suitable energy absorbing device for incorporation into the front guard of heavy goods vehicles.

Mrs. Chalker

During the last three years the transport and road research laboratory has spent about £6,000 per year on testing experimental front guards for heavy goods vehicles, and expects to spend a similar sum this year.
