PETROL AND DIESEL FUELS (3677/02)
Letter from the Chairman to David Jamieson
MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Transport
Thank you for your Explanatory Memorandum dated
20 January 2003 which Sub-Committee B considered at its meeting
on 3 February.
We agree that the compromise package appears
to be a favourable outcome for the United Kingdom. We note that
there will be no tightening of standards for non-road fuel specifications
in this proposal, and that any future tightening will be linked
to a Commission study of the costs, benefits, feasibility and
need for improved non-road fuel quality.
We lift the Scrutiny reserve on this document.
