HC Deb 19 June 2002 vol 387 c349W
Mr. Laurence Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what extra funding has been provided to local authorities to finance the end-of-life vehicles directive; and if she will make a statement. [62560]

Mr. Wilson

[holding answer 17 June 2002]: The directive contains no provision which applies directly to local authorities. Additional costs incurred by local authorities as a consequence of our transposition and implementation of the directive would, under the "New Burdens" arrangements, fall to be met by DTI.
