UK Government are accused of being complacent over Emissions scandal

Homepage 1.1-17

Consumer groups and MPs have accused the UK government of being complacent in its response to the VW emissions scandal as reported in The Guardian newspaper. The government have not yet made any allegations against VW in the wake of the emissions scandal and are yet to state whether they class fitting cars with test cheating software as illegal.

As reported in The Guardian members of the transport select committee have been described as “phenomenally complement” after it emerged that Robert Goodwill, the minister for transport said he had not discussed any possible prosecution.

Goodwill who sat before MPs in a select committee meeting advised he had not been pushed for any move by the serious fraud squad, this is despite the US this week reaching a settlement with VW over the emissions scandal. The package included VW buying some cars back and owners receiving compensation.

According to The Guardian pressure is increasing on the UK government to seek some sort of compensation for UK drivers.
