§ 24. Mr. Foulkes
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will now consider bringing in legislation to require lorry manufacturers to fit spray-reducing mudguards and flaps on all heavy vehicles built in the United Kingdom and requiring similar fittings on all imported vehicles.
§ Mrs. Chalker
A committee of the British Standards Institution is currently preparing a technical standard for spray suppression and I shall introduce regulations as soon as that standard is available.
The regulations will apply to both United Kingdom-built and imported vehicles.
