HC Deb 27 January 1982 vol 16 cc358-9W
Sir Hector Monro

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will have discussions with the oil industry about producing diesel fuel for lorries and tractors that will not freeze up in cold weather.

Mr. Gray

Petroleum fuels marketed in the United Kingdom comply with an appropriate specification such as those issued by the British Standards Institution. I have therefore arranged for the question of the cold temperature quality of diesel fuel to be raised with the British Standards Institution.
