§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action under the control of industrial major accident hazard regulations which came into effect in 1986, his Department has considered with respect to toxic waste and dangerous chemicals that travel through south Yorkshire by road and rail.
§ Mr. Portillo
The Control of Industrial Major Accident Hazards Regulations 1984, as amended in 1988, apply only to fixed industrial installations. The transport of dangerous substances, including toxic waste, by road and rail is fully regulated to ensure maximum safety and the regulations are kept under review.
