Q.1 What proportion of lorries across the short straights are travelling GB-EU empty? ITV were reporting 65% empty at Dunkirk and Calais last week, which was much higher than the 30% mentioned at PAC? A. BPDG's BOC are looking into this however we believe the figure is actually down to 50% empties.

Q.2 6000 x 5% turnback = 300 trucks ? A. No - the 6000 figure is the KAPs figure which stays above the level of freight flow so this figure of 300 trucks is not accurate.

Q.5 The question of Transit remains high on my Members list of priorites. At a recent internal meeting it was clear that there is a considerable difference between what government and our Members are saying--many are reporting delays in increasing guarantees etc. A. We are aware that people are struggling with transit and gurantees . We are not complacent and are working with industry to try and resolve these issues.
