HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 c703W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take an early opportunity to request the Director General of Fair Trading to consider the need to introduce a special order to improve the accuracy of tyre pressure gauges and thereby to improve road safety.

Sir G. Howe

The Department of the Environment and my Department are consulting appropriate organisations to determine the best way of improving the accuracy of tyre pressure gauges, in the interests of road safety.
