§ Mr. Sheerman
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what special arrangements are made with the local police when transporters carrying nuclear fuel-related loads cross the M62.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
The police would not normally be involved in the routine transportation by road of nuclear fuel-related loads. Special arrangements would be made if an escort were required for an abnormally large or slow moving load. I understand that no such escorts have been required in the West Yorkshire police area.
