House of Commons not keen on EU Super MoT proposals

Following the evidence MAG and others gave to the DfT, the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee has released a document outlining why the UK cannot support plans for a new Super MoT.

It criticises all the ‘assumptions’ the EU Commission has made and acknowledges that they have very little evidence on which to base their ideas.

The report acknowledges what MAG said about vastly increased costs to motorists and that the costs far out weigh any justified gains.

It takes particular issue with the assumptions made about possible lives saved and notes the inclusion of trailers would cost the UK an estimated £237 million.
