Road traffic Goods vehicle. The Divisional Court held that Sch3(5) of the Goods Vehicles (Licensing of Operators) Regulations 1995, SI1995-2869, was to be given a narrow interpretation; the use for which a vehicle was being put fell within the exemption if and only if it was not too remote to the plain meaning of the words 'for funerals'.
