asked the Secretary of State for Transport (1) if he will place in the Library a copy of the regulations relating to the transportation of dangerous substances;(2) whether there are regulations governing the constituency of the load of dangerous substances which are regularly transported through residential areas; and if he will place copies of the relevant regulations in the Library.
