HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 c768W
Mr. Tynan

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what recent discussions his Department has had with vehicle manufacturers to encourage the development of more environmentally-friendly cars. [59733]

Mr. Jamieson

I have been asked to reply.

DTLR together with the DTI, DEFRA and the Treasury published "Powering Future Vehicles, a draft Government Strategy", setting out and inviting comment on the Government's proposals for promoting the development, introduction and take-up of environmentally friendly low-carbon vehicles and fuels. As part of the consultation, the four Ministers held a major discussion seminar with all the stakeholders in the shift to low-carbon transport, including vehicle manufacturers. We are very grateful for their input to the development of the strategy, which includes the setting up of a Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, involving vehicle manufacturers and other stakeholders in the strategy's implementation. The final Powering Future Vehicles strategy will be published shortly.

Forward to
