HC Deb 01 April 1981 vol 2 c132W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what proposals he has further to reduce the lead content of petrol.

Mr. Fowler

The lead content of petrol was reduced to 0.40 grams per litre on 1 January. I am considering if further action is necessary in the light of the Lawther report on the health effects of lead in the environment. I hope that a statement will be made soon.
