HC Deb 20 February 1973 vol 851 c70W
Sir H. Harrison

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a progress report on the negotiations relating to the size and length of lorries presently allowed on the roads.

Mr. Peyton

The current negotiations in EEC on lorry weights and dimensions are on standards to be applied in 1980 or later. There have been no developments since the Council meeting last December, when the Six agreed to leave the matter open for continued discussion in the enlarged Community this year.
