Motor Vehicles: Exhaust Emissions

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 107726, tabled on 22 October 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of a retrospective emission-based grant to coach operators with respect to their investment in Euro 6 compliant vehicles.

In local authorities with NO2 exceedances, coach and bus operators are eligible for grants from clean air funding to help with the cost of replacing or upgrading vehicles. Grants are not given retrospectively to subsidise the cost of a vehicle that has already been purchased as this would not represent a good use of public funds.
