These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 95(1) and (1A), 101(2) and (5) and 157 of the Transport Act 1968(1) and section 2(2) of, and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to, the European Communities Act 1972(2).

The Secretary of State for Transport is a Minister designated(3) for the purpose of section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 in relation to the regulation of the type, description, construction or equipment of vehicles and the regulation and supervision of working conditions of persons engaged in road transport.

The Secretary of State has consulted with such representative organisations as he saw fit in accordance with section 101(6) of the Transport Act 1968.

In accordance with section 101(3A) of the Transport Act 1968 and paragraph 2(2) of Schedule 2 to the European Communities Act 1972, a draft of these Regulations has been laid before Parliament and has been approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.
