HC Deb 21 February 1991 vol 186 c194W
Mr. Ward

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will take steps to encourage out-of-hour retail deliveries.

Mr. Chope

[holding answer 19 February 1991]: I have no current plans to do so. The matter is best determined by highway authorities in response to local circumstances under the wide powers available to them in the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. A considerable volume of out-of-hours deliveries already takes place under these arrangements and through agreements between businesses and distribution firms.
