Vehicles: Repairs

Volume 702: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they support the objectives of the Retail Motor Industry Federation's “Right to Repair Campaign” when negotiating changes to the block exemption regulations as they apply to the motor industry. [HL4216]

Yes we do. Now that the Commission's assessment of the block exemption is public, officials have been in discussion with representative groups from all areas of the industry, including the aftermarket. We recognise the potential difficulties highlighted by the “Right to Repair Campaign” and will address these with the Commission. These meetings are very helpful in forming our final policy position.
