HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 c6W
46 and 47. Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) what representations he has received from the motor industry about the effect of United States exhaust pollution reduction proposals on British car manufacturers and their exports;

(2) what study has been undertaken by his Department into the use and efficacy of anti-pollution regulations as imposed by other countries, in view of their effects on British car exports.

Mr. Chataway

My Department keeps in touch with developments in relation to such regulations, but I have received no representations from the motor industry about the effect of proposals in the United States for the reduction of pollution from vehicle exhausts.
