Transport: Heavy Goods Vehicles

Volume 700: debated on Thursday 24 April 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

With regard to “on the spot” penalties for drivers of lorries registered outside the United Kingdom, what levels of penalty will be available for (a) serious breaches of the drivers hours regulations; (b) overloading; and (c) defective mechanical condition. [HL3063]

There will be a further consultation on these details later this year, including on the financial penalty and deposit levels.
