Freight: EU Law

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what proposals are being discussed at an EU level on liberalisation of the haulage industry. (202980)

In May 2007 the European Commission published a proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on access to the market in the carriage of goods by road within the Community to or from the territory of a member state or passing across the territory of one or more member states (recast).

On 7 December 2007 the Department for Transport (DFT) launched a formal consultation on this proposal. The Consultation Document and the DFT response to consultation replies can be found on the DFT website at:
