HC Deb 14 December 1994 vol 251 c724W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what measures he proposes to eradicate pollution by traffic; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

The Government's approach was set out in "This Common Inheritance: The Third Year Report", Cm. published in May. A range of measures is being taken including tighter emission standards and changes to fuel composition which should lead to a progressive decline in traffic pollution. A crackdown on offending vehicles was announced in October, and further measures are under consideration.
