Motion text

That this House notes that the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency is currently undertaking a consultation exercise on its fee structure; expresses concern that three of the four options under review would impose an annual fee or possession tax upon the owners of vehicles currently off the road and not in use; is alarmed that, if implemented, this proposal would apply to historic and classic vehicles currently off the road and undergoing restoration; deplores the fact that it would mean for the first time in the history of British motoring that the keeper of a vehicle which is not currently being used would have to pay to the Government a fee based on vehicle ownership; and calls upon the Government to reject proposals to impose this annual vehicle possession tax.
