asked Her Majesty's Government:
In the case of a heavy goods vehicle driver breaching the permitted hours of duty under the Working Time Directive while in the United Kingdom, what follow-up action is taken by the licensing authority in the offending vehicle operator's country of origin; and whether they have evidence of follow-up action being taken in Poland and the Czech Republic.
Regulations implementing Directive 2002/15/EC came into force earlier this year.
To date, enforcers have not encountered any breach of the regulations by foreign-based drivers.
If it were necessary to report a foreign-based driver for breach of these or any other regulations, follow-up action would be a matter for the licensing authority in the offending vehicle operator's country of origin.
