§ The Marquess of Ailesbury
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will take steps to prohibit the fitting of remould tyres to the front wheels of heavy goods vehicles.
§ Lord Lucas of Chilworth
Despite the recent tragic accident on the M4 motorway, there is no record of retreaded tyres failing more often than new tyres, and we have no plans to prohibit their use on front wheels.
