Trailer safety: testing regulations

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords] – in a Public Bill Committee at 3:30 pm on 22nd May 2018.

Alert me about debates like this

“(1) Regulations may provide for periodic testing of the construction, condition or safety of relevant trailers.

(2) The regulations may amend provision made by or under Part 2 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.

(3) The regulations may, in making consequential or other provision as mentioned in section 23(1)(a), amend any Act (whenever passed or made).

(4) No regulations under this section may be made before the report is laid before Parliament under section (Trailer safety: report).

(5) In this section, “relevant trailers” has the meaning given by section (Trailer safety: report)(4).”—

This new clause allows the Secretary of State to introduce a system of periodic testing for trailers weighing more than 750 kilograms.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.

Bill, as amended, to be reported.
