asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government concerning the compulsory use of tachographs in com- mercial vehicles in line with EEC regulation 1463/70.
I refer the hon. Member to my statement in the House on 12th January 1977.—[Vol. 923, c. 1428–9.]—I hope shortly to make regulations which will empower the Government to approve tachograph calibration centres and thus enable vehicles on international journeys to comply with EEC Regulation 1463/70.
