Extension Of The Car Scrappage Scheme

EDM number 128 in 2009-10, proposed by Lindsay Hoyle on 19/11/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Roads.

That this House welcomes the Government's announcement to extend the car scrappage scheme to cover an extra 100,000 vehicles; acknowledges recent figures from the Society of Manufacturers and Traders confirming that the scrappage scheme has raised demand and therefore production of cars in the UK; therefore notes that the scheme has contributed to saving potentially tens of thousands of skilled jobs by preventing the closure of any British car plant during the recession to date; and calls on the Government to strengthen the British car industry further by introducing a short-term working subsidy as proven successful through such schemes in operation across Europe.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
