HC Deb 06 February 1984 vol 53 cc448-9W
45. Mr. Hayward

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what efforts are being made by his Department to check the overloading of lorries.

Mrs. Chalker

65,179 lorries were check-weighted by traffic examiners in the 12 months period ending 30 September 1983; an increase of 19 per cent. over the previous period. I will continue to seek ways of improving the effectiveness of our enforcement procedures and reducing the extent of overloading.
