§ 21. Mr. Nicholls
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will reconsider increasing the maximum permitted gross vehicle weight for articulated and draw-bar trailer combinations to 40 tonnes; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We decided in 1982 that we would go no higher than 38 tonnes. I do not believe the House is ready to reconsider that limit.
