Motor Vehicles: EU Law
Steven Baker (Wycombe, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment she has made of evidence used by the European Commission in respect of compliance with roadworthiness regimes for (a) L3 vehicles and (b) commercial vehicles.
Michael Penning (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Roads and Motoring), Transport; Hemel Hempstead, Conservative)
There is no recent published evidence to assess. We expect the EC to publish a proposal for new EU rules on vehicle roadworthiness testing this summer and we will examine carefully any impact assessment evidence that is published alongside the proposal.
