Vehicle Number Plates: Theft
John Hemming (Birmingham, Yardley, Liberal Democrat)
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will issue guidance to car vendors requesting that they advise people of the availability of anti-theft number plates when cars are sold.
Stephen Ladyman (Minister of State, Department for Transport; South Thanet, Labour)
When the tamper resistant plate initiative was launched after the first manufacturer passed the standard in 2006, DVLA provided publicity material for the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF) to distribute to all their members. A second manufacturer has now passed the test and further publicity is planned.
