HC Deb 31 January 1986 vol 90 c657W
Mr. Bendall

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what information he has received from the company concerned regarding the reasons for the delay in bringing the CR6 taxi cab into production; whether, in the light of these delays, the Government are reconsidering their policy towards financial support for the project; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Various reasons for the delay in putting the CR6 into production have been put to my Department by the company but these are commercially confidential. As my hon. Friend will be aware from press reports, however, the company has now decided not to proceed with the Range Rover CR6 but is proposing to introduce a new taxi, capable of carrying a wheelchair-bound passenger based upon the existing FX4. My Department is discussing the future of the project with LTI and will then consider any implications for its financial support.
