HC Deb 27 February 1985 vol 74 c186W
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.
