§ 36. Mr. Adley
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proportion of air pollution in the United Kingdom is attributable to the internal-combustion engine, and to aircraft, respectively; and if he is satisfied that sufficient pressure is being put upon motor manufacturers to take steps to reduce environmental pollution, particularly that caused by fumes from diesel vehicles.
§ Mr. Peyton
The answer to the first part of the Question is the same as that given to my hon. Friend on 9th February. Regulations were laid before the House on 6th June to control diesel smoke emissions. Consultations will be starting shortly with interested organisations including motor manufacturers on proposals to control emissions from petrol-engined vehicles.
