Responding to the document, the LPGA states: 'The LP gas industry has demonstrated a substantial commitment to developing the autogas market. 'We were advised that Powershift funding was available until 2004 but despite widespread commitment shown across the industry, we now learn that funding could be removed as early as the end of next year. This situation needs to be corrected at the earliest opportunity.'
A spokesman from TransportAction Powershift said: 'The grants are guaranteed to the end of 2002, and will be reconsidered then. We can't speculate on what will happen.'
