Official Cars: Carbon Emissions

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what opportunities are provided to Ministers to use UK-built cars that comply with carbon dioxide emission guidelines. (224615)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to him on 26 June 2008, Official Report, column 427W.

The Government remain committed to reducing the average emissions of the Government fleet to 130g/km by 2010. The range of vehicles commercially available which produce low carbon emissions is increasing and a number of new or improved models are expected to be released over the next year. GCDA is therefore reviewing the low carbon vehicles which may be suitable for use by Ministers as remaining older cars are replaced.
