Vehicle Excise Duty

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects to make available the £5 refunds for drivers of vehicles with low capacity engines who purchased Vehicle Excise duty in April 2006. (100042)

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) administers the collection of Vehicle Excise Duty (VED).

No specific refund provisions were made available following the changes that were made to Vehicle Excise Duty Rates in Budget 2006.

The VED rate for lower capacity engine cars registered before 1 March 2001 was frozen in Budget 2006. Therefore, these drivers would have paid the same VED rate before and after Budget 2006.
