asked the Minister of Transport how many of the officially-accredited testing stations for motor vehicles have facilities for testing vehicles which exceed 30 cwt. unladen weight.

All the 15,000 or so garages authorised to test four-wheeled vehicles would be able to test vehicles exceeding 30 cwt. unladen weight. Not all would have the accommodation or plant to deal easily with exceptionally high or heavy vehicles. These represent only a small proportion of the vehicles to be tested My Department's officers are always glad to help in any case of difficulty.
