HC Deb 28 June 1990 vol 175 c306W
Mr. Maples

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the current timetable for the start of the select registration scheme.

Mr. Atkins

The select registration scheme will start on 1 October 1990 with the H letter. Buyers of new vehicles after that date will be able to purchase an entitlement to any registration mark from the numerical range 1 to 20, for almost all possible three-letter combinations. The sales scheme will be widely publicised and I have placed copies of the Department's information leaflet in the Library.
