HC Deb 03 April 1996 vol 275 c308W
Dr. Michael Clark

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the sale from garage forecourts of lead replacement gasoline not regulated by a specific British standard. [24810]

Mr. Page

At the time of the last Budget, the Government decided to remove most of the excise duty advantage from higher octane unleaded petrols, which include lead replacement gasoline. The drafting of British standards is the responsibility of the British Standards Institution, BSI.
