Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

In order to facilitate and inform the public consultation process on the question of a maximum height for vehicles, I have decided that a background paper will accompany the draft regulations. The paper will provide a context for the draft regulations by outlining the considerations of the various interests involved in this matter. Publication of the draft regulations was deferred pending the completion of the information paper. I expect to be in a position to issue the draft regulations and information paper shortly.
