HC Deb 04 November 1987 vol 121 c785W
89. Mr. Ingram

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the lean burn engine to be fitted to all new cars sold in Britain.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

I cannot predict how widely the lean burn engine will be used in future. It is one of the most attractive options open to manufacturers seeking to comply with tighter emission limits, taking into account factors such as cost, performance, fuel economy and driveability.
