Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how many domestic vehicles in each vehicle excise duty band were registered to addresses in York in the latest period for which figures are available. (295221)

The following table provides the total number of privately owned cars and light vans that were licensed on the 30 June, 2009 in the City of York council.

Cars that were first registered before 1 March 2001 have their vehicle excise duty band based on engine size. Cars that have been first registered since this date have their vehicle excise duty band based on CO2 emissions.

As some vans (light goods vehicles weighing no more than 3,500 kilograms) may be used for domestic purposes, all privately owned vans registered in the City of York council have been included in the table.

Details on the vehicle excise duty rates application to each band are available at:
