§ 17. Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps are being taken to reduce the disparity in car prices in the European Economic Community member states.
§ Mr. Norman Lamont
The Commission has now adopted a regulation which should help to ensure that consumers benefit from a genuine common market for motor vehicles in which they are free to buy, across geographical boundaries if necessary, from whichever source offers the most favourable terms. This should contribute to a continuing erosion of price differentials.
