asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the estimated impact of the Greater London council lorry ban on transport operators who have traditionally delivered their loads into the city from rural areas of Scotland.

I cannot but be anxious about the potential effects of the GLC lorry ban and I will keep a close watch on developments. The impact will largely depend on the detailed administration of the ban, particularly the exemption permit system, by the GLC and individual boroughs in their areas, after abolition of the GLC, on 1 April 1986.
