asked the Minister of Transport if he has any plans to publish a new code of practice about safety of loads on vehicles; and if he will make a statement.

The Department's code of practice "Safety of Loads on Vehicles" was published in 1972. Much of the advice in it is still useful but I have decided that the code should be updated to take account of more recent experience and developments. Preliminary consultations on revision of the code have now started.
