We are considering the possible effectiveness of the outrigger arms for tractors to which the hon. Member refers as part of the general study of the comments on the proposed regulations. It does not seem probable, however, that they will afford adequate protection against overturning in as wide a range of circumstances as would a safety frame or cab.
Yes, we are attending to this very urgently indeed, but as the hon. Gentleman's Question suggests, there are differences of opinion as to what is the best method, and consultations are going on. We should like to be sure that what we decide is right. We appreciate that outrigger arms afford a considerable amount of safety.
