HC Deb 13 May 1982 vol 23 cc324-5W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he is able to give any more recent estimate of the costs to the United Kingdom motor industry of changing to production of motor car engines designed to run on lead-free petrol than those for 1978 referred to in his answer of 15 February, Official Report, c. 39.

Mr. Butcher

I have been asked to reply.

For the present the estimate referred to in the reply by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport remains the most recent comprehensive estimate available to the Government.
