Motion text

That this House recognises the vital role played by the haulage industry in the UK's economy; is concerned that the economic downturn has placed extreme pressure on the haulage industry; is worried at the repeated blockades of European ports used by the UK haulage industry; notes that blockades have a highly detrimental effect on the UK's economy; is anxious that established EU regulations are not being fully enforced; and calls on the Government to press fellow EU member states such as France to prevent blockades on continental ports by quickly resolving industrial disputes.
