Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

FUTURE transport policy must give hauliers clear and definite decisions on a wide range of issues so that they can have firm guidelines when they plan ahead.

That is the view of Mr David White, group co-ordinator of British Road Services Ltd. In particular he wants to see longterm strategies on EEC regulations, motorway planning and weight restrictions as well as a national policy on lorry routeing.

"At a time when industry is being urged to re-invest it is imperative that companies know exactly what factors they have to consider when making those judgments," he said.

Without a clear plan to work to it was possible to make the wrong capital investment decisions and fix innacurate pricing structures for products in national distribution.

On the question of vehicle access to city centres Mr White said he would like to see a uniform national policy being agreed.

"If things go on as they are we shall need a central pool of information to monitor each conurbation's regulations. It will not only make route planning a nightmare but with the eight-hour day coming it will be costly too."
