HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 c1024
33. Mr. P. Williams

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take immediate action to control the amount of fumes being emitted from road vehicles.

Mr. Hay

Every motor vehicle must be so constructed that no avoidable smoke or visible vapour is emitted. It is an offence to emit smoke or vapour if this causes, or is likely to cause, damage to property or injury to any person or is likely to cause danger to any person on a road. Enforcement of this law is the responsibility of the police.

Mr. Williams

As I could not hear the Answer, I had better ask Question No. 34

Mr. Marples

With permission, I will answer Questions No. 34, 49 and 60 together—

Mr. Speaker

Order. I did not call Question No. 34.
