HC Deb 06 November 2001 vol 374 c159W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what the estimated cost to British businesses is of the end-of-life vehicles directive.[11861]

Mr. Wilson

The DTI Consultation Paper on options for implementing the Directive, copies of which were placed in the Libraries of both Houses, includes a partial regulatory impact assessment. A fuller assessment of the cost to businesses will be made when the precise method of implementation has been decided, following consideration of responses received in the consultation exercise.
