BVRLA outlines fleet manifesto to main political parties

The incoming government needs to conduct a comprehensive rethink of company car taxation, according to the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA).

The group has published a six-point plan, entitled ‘A Fleet and Mobility Services Manifesto’, in which it outlines how the next government can help the fleet sector drive down emissions, improve road safety and make road transport more cost efficient.

A copy of the manifesto has been sent to the three major political parties and urges the next government to carry out a wholesale review of company car taxation that recognises the benefits of company cars in terms of reduced emissions and revenue to HM Treasury

They also want to the government to build on the recently published ‘Clean Air Zone Framework for England’ by providing additional guidance to ensure consistency in standards, enforcement, timescales for introduction and penalties for non-compliance

Point five and six call for the removal of the need for commercial vehicle examiners to be directly employed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, and for the setup of a mobility data hub, enabling fleet operators to share data in an open, secure and fair way.

BVRLA chief executive Gerry Keaney said the new government must appreciate the vital role BVRLA members have in delivering safer, sustainable and more cost-efficient road transport

He commented: “Policymakers face a real challenge, not just in terms of Brexit, but also in how the UK embraces the move towards data-driven mobility services
