HC Deb 14 July 1998 vol 316 cc128-9W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what level of excise duty he plans to levy on the special grade of unleaded petrol containing lead substitutes which will replace leaded petrol from 2000. [50024]

Mrs. Liddell

The Chancellor is aware of the likely introduction of lead replacement petrol and will be considering the appropriate level of excise duty in the run up to the next Budget. The industry has indicated that lead replacement petrol could be introduced in mid-1999, in advance of the ban on leaded petrol from 2000.
