HC Deb 17 January 1968 vol 756 cc569-70W
74. Sit R. Russell

asked the Minister of Trans port, in view of the progress being made in the United States of America in reducing air pollution from motor vehicles, what plans she has to ensure that motor vehicles produced in Great Britain conform to similar standards; and when she expects her proposals to take effect.

Mr. Carmichael:

The main American problem is a distinct one arising from exceptional conditions there. Medical research has not so far shown need for new regulations in this country. It is already unlawful for a vehicle to discharge excessive smoke or vapour.
