HC Deb 15 November 1967 vol 754 c120W
87. Mr. John Hall

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the estimated effect on British car exports to the United States of America of the introduction of the new safety regulations drawn up by the United States Traffic Safety Agency, details of which are in his possession.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

As a result of the determined efforts of British manufacturers to adapt their models, it is not expected that the United States Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, coming into force on 1st January, 1968, will have other that a short-term effect on British car exports to that country.
