§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what measures he proposes to eradicate pollution by traffic; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
The Government's approach was set out in "This Common Inheritance: The Third Year Report", Cm. published in May. A range of measures is being taken including tighter emission standards and changes to fuel composition which should lead to a progressive decline in traffic pollution. A crackdown on offending vehicles was announced in October, and further measures are under consideration.
