TOUGHER CONTROLS to ensure that diesel fumes do not exceed the laid-down standards are to be introduced early next year.
This was announced in the Commons last week by Mr John Horam, Under Secretary for Transport.
Asked by Mr David Knox (Tory, Leek) about more stringent control of lorry exhausts, Mr Oram said that the smoke emission limits for' diesel engines already imposed by reference to British Standard BS AU 141a were, he believed, adequate.
The problem was to ensure that manufacturers met them, and the Government was discussing tougher quality control procedures with manufacturers' representatives.
