HC Deb 11 April 1983 vol 40 cc304-5W
Mr. Adley

asked the Prime Minister if she will introduce legislation to make compulsory the fitting of stainless steel exhausts to new motor vehicles, in order to enable filters to be fitted to them to reduce the emission of lead.

The Prime Minister

No. In the absence of a legal requirement for lead filters it would be wrong to limit consumer choice by insisting on exhaust systems of stainless steel.
