HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 cc31-2W
34. Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he is satisfied that adequate weighbridge facilities are available to weigh any heavy commercial vehicles at any time of the day, every day of the week, at all ports of entry to the United Kingdom.

Mrs. Chalker

Axle weighbridges have been provided at most major roll-on/roll-off ferry ports and others are either under construction or planned. The Department's traffic examiners regularly check vehicles entering the country at these ports, and at other inland sites.
