§ Dr. David Clark
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he has any plans to encourage other petrol producers to follow the example of those companies which have introduced, or plan to introduce, lead-free petrol ahead of the statutory dates; and if he will make a statement;
(2) what plans he has for a campaign to inform motorists on the use of lead-free petrol; and, in particular, how he intends to publicise which existing models can use it safely.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Lincoln (Mr. Carlisle) on 23 June 1986 at columns3–5. Unleaded petrol started to come on the market shortly thereafter, and the Department is already consulting interested bodies on the information needs of motorists.
