HC Deb 23 February 1987 vol 111 c22W
48. Mr. Fry

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received about the effect on coach operators of current European Economic Community legislation on drivers' hours, particularly in respect of part-time drivers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

In the last three months the Department has received about 70 letters from coach operators about the current European Community regulations on drivers' hours; 26 referred to the question of part-time drivers. We are in close touch with the industry over the implementation of these regulations.
