HC Deb 09 November 1987 vol 122 c82W
Mr. Fry

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action he has taken to strengthen the vehicle inspectorate since the enactment of the Transport Act 1985; and whether the Act has led to any increase in the need for corrective action by the inspectorate.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

This year the vehicle inspectorate will do an extra 13 per cent. more work on public service vehicles, some of which will be corrective action.
