John Whittingdale: ...investment to expand that work, to support and build Radioplayer in the UK and to continue the development of partnerships across Europe. Radioplayer has partnerships with manufacturers including Volkswagen Group, BMW and Renault, which together represent over 40% of all European car sales, and it recently announced a long-term extension and expansion of its partnership with VW Group’s...

UK Automotive Industry (18 Sep 2023)

Mark Pawsey: lifetime, I have seen huge change in the origin of the cars on our roads. In my early years, they were mostly domestically manufactured. In the 1960s, I looked out for European cars, such as the Volkswagen Beetle, and then in the 1970s we saw the introduction of Japanese cars, such as the reliable, small Datsuns. In recent years, the majority of cars on our roads have been manufactured...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Adventure Parc Snowdonia (12 Sep 2023)

Mark Drakeford: the world, and they have an annual series of awards for the promotion, the advertising and promotion campaigns that are run across the world. There were many winners on that Friday night—Volkswagen were amongst them, for example—but the chief prize, the chief prize across the world, went to the Welsh Government's tourism campaign, 'Wales to the World'. I know that the Welsh...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Motor Vehicles ( 6 Sep 2023)

James Cartlidge: ...otherwise know as the 'white fleet'. There are currently electric and hybrid vehicles made by Citroen, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Land Rover, Maxus, MG, Mini, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Skoda, Toyota, and Volkswagen in the 'white fleet'. The Ministry of Defence does not hold a central list of the country of manufacture for every vehicle leased under Phoenix II, therefore I am unable to offer...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 64ZA (to Amendment 64) (17 May 2023)

Baroness Lawlor: the price, and I think that our system will be clear and fairer. I am not sure, either, that the EU regulations covering emissions are necessarily effective. I draw on the historic case of the Volkswagen emissions scandal, when there were clear directives from 2008—updated in 2012—covering the emissions from cars. These were neglected or not enforced, and the knowledge that that...

UK Car Industry (17 May 2023)

Nusrat Ghani: ...week—possibly on Monday or Tuesday, I cannot remember—I caught up with Aston Martin, Bentley Motors, BMW, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Nissan, Stellantis, Tesla, Toyota and the Volkswagen group. They are keen to continue working with us to ensure that we have supply chains here in the UK.

UK Car Production Since 2016 - Question (14 Mar 2023)

Lord Howell of Guildford: ...thinks about the EU proposal, announced yesterday, to go for what it calls a Net-Zero Industry Act to compete with the Inflation Reduction Act in the United States, because it is very nervous that Volkswagen and other European manufacturers are all about to move from France and Germany to the United States? How are we going to work it out in this situation? It seems rather dangerous.

Electric Vehicles: Infrastructure — [Peter Bone in the Chair] (22 Feb 2023)

Wera Hobhouse: ...points in London compared with the rest of the country, and yet two thirds of the new infrastructure is proposed for London. The lack of EV chargers is a concern for more than half of motorists. Volkswagen has noticed that, apart from the cost, the key concern for buyers today remains charging anxiety. The lack of charging infrastructure is leading people towards do-it-yourself charging,...

Caravan Site Licensing (Exemptions of Motor Homes) Bill ( 3 Feb 2023)

Christopher Chope: ...this Act”, obviously relating to the same definition of caravans. Since 1960, what we now know as motor homes have come into the marketplace. The earliest camper vans in Europe were introduced by Volkswagen in 1947, and were essentially motorised trollies, but we now have purpose-built, carriage-built motor homes in large quantity.

Public Bill Committee: Equipment Theft (Prevention) Bill: Clause 1 - Requirements for sale of equipment ( 1 Feb 2023)

Holly Lynch: Again, on Second Reading I spoke of the problem of theft from commercial vans—a point made by the right hon. Member for Chelmsford and others. According to research carried out by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in 2021, 27% of van drivers had fallen victim to tool theft in the previous 12 months. The total cost of all lost tools and equipment is estimated to be about £15...

MOTs: Increased Particulate Matter Testing (24 Jan 2023)

Barry Sheerman: Does the Minister agree that the auto industry has some responsibility here? It would be wonderful if big companies such as Volkswagen, which must have a guilty conscience in some ways about this issue, could put some resources in to ease the transition.

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: New Clause 9 - Offence of failing to comply with a relevant duty (15 Dec 2022)

Damian Collins: ...) is based on other existing legislation, and on there being knowledge—with “consent or connivance”. We can see how that would apply in cases such as the diesel emissions concerns raised at Volkswagen, where there was criminal liability, or maybe the LIBOR bank rate rigging and the serious failures there. In those cases, what was discovered was senior management’s knowledge and...

Equipment Theft (Prevention) Bill ( 2 Dec 2022)

Holly Lynch: this area and his contributions on the topic in the Chamber today and previously, I know that he is all too aware of the problem of theft from vans. According to research carried out by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, in 2021, 27% of van drivers had fallen victim to tool theft in the previous 12 months. The total cost of all lost tools and equipment is estimated to be about £15 million...

Public Order Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (16 Nov 2022)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...disruptive because it could be seriously disruptive at a different time and a different place. I rather liked the example of what happened recently in Germany, where people locked on in the Volkswagen museum. They did not cause any serious disruption because the curators turned the lights out, turned the heating off and went home, leaving them there. As it happens, the protestors response...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witness (27 Oct 2022)

...that Companies House did not apply the law correctly; it suggests the law is not very good in terms of the intellectual capital. There is a guy in Cheam who has legitimately registered Renault Ltd, Volkswagen Ltd, Adidas Ltd and Asda Ltd—which he re-registered after Asda Ltd in Huddersfield got struck off. That is simply nonsense. Intellectual capital is clearly being compromised by...

Vehicle Tampering Offences — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (25 Apr 2022)

Steven Baker: positively discouraged from caring about the vehicle because there is no point. In contrast to my amazing KTM 950, with its absence of electronic devices, I recently hired a car in Norway—a Volkswagen ID4. It was a lovely car in many ways. It was all electric and had cruise control and a stupid speed limiter that knows where the car is and so starts to reduce the cruise control as it...

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 157 ( 5 Jul 2021)

Lord Berkeley: ...hear the Minister say, I think, that the manufacturers will be penalised and made to compensate if they get it wrong and contravene whatever regulations we find. That is fine for a company such as Volkswagen, if it is caught out—I think it was the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, who said that companies are not charities and will do everything to get around this legislation, for good...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 61 - Offence relating to residing on land without consent in or with a vehicle ( 8 Jun 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: to interpretation that it could easily be applied to anyone with a vehicle. For example, how do the Government propose to ensure that the police distinguish between a modified Transit van or Volkswagen camper used at the weekends and one that is lived in? How will they distinguish between a family going on a caravan holiday and a Gypsy or Traveller family with an identical caravan...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (18 May 2021)

Lord Mann: ...the tripartism that has been in Germany post-war, but it is not as simple as people think. People think that there is a 50+1 procedure in German football. If we take the 18 clubs of the Bundesliga, Volkswagen owns Wolfsburg, Leverkusen is owned by Bayer, and Red Bull owns Leipzig. Hoffenheim has a wealthy individual who has put in a vast amount of money. That has not been fan ownership....
