HC Deb 06 July 1971 vol 820 cc1115-6
17. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent in framing fiscal policy on hydrocarbon oils he takes into account considerations of pollution.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

All relevant considerations are borne in mind.

Mr. Dalyell

Will this be borne in mind in determining the Government's attitude towards l.p.g. vehicles?

Mr. Jenkin

We will have an opportunity to discuss this matter later today. Some of the assumptions made about the pollution aspects of l.p.g. have been wildly over-stated in relation to vehicles and under-stated in relation to its use as industrial fuel. But the pollution aspects are important.
