Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• On July 15 in the Commons the Transport Minister gave an undertaking that regulations would be made to allow drivers engaged in the carriage of animals a 14-hour working day, a 66-hour working week and flexibility as regards their weekly rest days (see CM July 24).

Last Friday Mr Peyton carried out his promise and laid before Parliament the new regulations--the Drivers' Hours (Goods Vehicles) (Exemptions) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 1970. They came into immediate effect on Sunday in time for the major autumn livestock sales, and allow drivers carrying animals the same exemption as that already provided for agriculture generally at harvest time.
