§ Mr. Ian Lloyd
asked the Secretary of State for Energy when he proposes to implement the recommendation contained in the Central Policy Review Staff publication on energy consumption that all models of new cars sold in the United Kingdom should be tested to establish their fuel consumption over a specified driving cycle and the results published.
§ Mr. Eadie
It has been necessary, in consultation with the various interests concerned, to work out a practical scheme, to decide technical details of how tests should be made, and to harmonise our proposals with proposals under consideration internationally. This work is substantially complete, and my right hon. Friend expects to be able to make an announcement soon.
