HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 c44W
23. Mr. Hal Miller

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what advice he has been able to give manufacturers of vehicle engines about Government policy towards the use and pricing of alternative fuels to help them to reach a decision whether or not to build a new generation of diesel engines.

Dr. John A. Cunningham

None, Sir. It is not possible to predict the likely cost or price to the consumer of alternative fuels for automotive use.
