HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 c28W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he intends to introduce more stringent legislation to control the emission of exhaust pollution by lorries.

Mr. Horam

The smoke emission limits for diesel engines already imposed by reference to British Standard BS AU 141a are, I believe, adequate; the problem is to ensure that manufacturers meet them. We are discussing tougher quality control procedures with manufacturers' representatives, and intend to introduce them early next year.
