HC Deb 20 March 1990 vol 169 cc538-9W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if his Department's representatives at the recent Geneva motor show obtained any new technological information on the use of electronic controls to reduce pollution discharges from cars.

Mr. Atkins

[holding answer 19 March 1990]: The Department was not formally represented at the Geneva motor show, although officials did visit while in Geneva on other business. No new technological information on this subject was obtained. However, electronic controls are likely to be used extensively in the future to reduce emissions, in conjunction with catalysts.
