HL Deb 27 April 1998 vol 589 c11WA
Lord Strathcarron

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they propose to set standards for imported car parts where these are safety-critical, as happens in other western European countries. [HL1566]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (Baroness Hayman)

In common with other European Union member states, the UK already sets standards for safety-critical car parts which apply equally to imports and those manufactured in this country.
