§ Mr. Robert McCartney
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what progress his Department has made in bringing the smokeless fuel regulations into line with Great Britain. 
§ Mr. Moss
The regulations prescribing smokeless fuel authorised for use in smoke control areas in Northern Ireland correspond to those in Great Britain. However, only those fuels to be marketed in Northern Ireland are prescribed in the Northern Ireland regulations. Amending regulations are made periodically to meet requests from manufacturers for the inclusion of additional fuels.
