§ Lords Amendment: No. 1, in page 1 line 13, leave out from "journey" to "unless" in line 17 and insert—
- "(i) for or in connection with the carriage or haulage of goods either for hire or reward or for or in connection with any trade or business carried on by the user of the vehicle; and
- (ii) either between a place in the United Kingdom and a place outside the United Kingdom or, if the journey passes through any part of the United Kingdom, between places both of which are outside the United Kingdom;".
§ Mr. Weitzman
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
The Automobile Association has expressed concern that, as drafted, the Bill could apply to caravans and other trailers in which goods may be carried when drawn by private cars. There is no such intention. Permits are required only for commercial operators of goods vehicles on international journeys.
The amendment clarifies the position in words which will be familiar because they were used in sections 60(1) of the Transport Act 1968 in relation to operator's licensing.
§ Question put and agreed to.
