Motor Vehicles: Registration

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 28 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent representations his Department has received from the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency on the release of vehicle odometer reading data from MOT testing. (251694)

There have been no recent discussions between the Department and The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) on the release of vehicle odometer reading data from MOT testing. VOSA is still considering the benefits and legal issues associated with the further release of such data to non-public bodies. Whether this proceeds will be subject to VOSA/DfT approval processes and overall Agency priorities.
