HC Deb 17 January 1995 vol 252 c416W
Mr. David Nicholson

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what EC regulations apply to the manufacture and use in the United Kingdom of double-decker buses; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Norris

The Road Vehicle (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 require certain systems and components in vehicles to comply with the performance requirements of EC directives or United Nations Economic Commission for Europe regulations. We are currently awaiting an EC proposal for a draft directive on bus and coach construction.
