HC Deb 07 March 1984 vol 55 c610W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will amend current legislation to enable local authorities to institute proceedings against the owners and operators of vehicles fuelled by diesel which emit unreasonable quantities of smoke.

Mr. Waldegrave

My hon. Friend clearly has in mind recommendation 79 in the tenth report of the Royal Commission on environmental pollution. I shall be considering this with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport.
