To ask the Secretary of State for Transport
(1) if he will publish on his Department's website advice to motorists and repairers on the removal of factory-fitted diesel particulate filters from vehicles;
(2) how many enquiries from motorists and repairers his Department has received on the removal or absence of factory-fitted diesel particulate filters in the last 12 months for which figures are available.
The Department and its agencies have received approximately 240 inquiries on the removal of particulate filters over the last 12 months.
This topic is one of a very large number on which the Department regularly provides advice to businesses and to the public. The Department's officials have been asked to ensure that suitable advice is available on the Government website.
