Zero emission vehicles: Government Response to the Committee’s First Report
25 October 2021
The Government’s response to the Committee’s report: Zero emission vehicles was published on Monday October 25, 2021.
The Committee’s report, published in July 2021, called for a clear policy framework from Government to ensure that industry can deliver the vehicles and charging infrastructure required to boost the production and purchase of electric vehicles as the net zero deadline approaches. MPs said that owners of electric vehicles should not race a postcode lottery: charging an electric vehicle should be convenient, straightforward and inexpensive.
The report was the first part of the Committee’s inquiry into Zero emission vehicles and road pricing. MPs proceeded to take oral evidence on road pricing on October 20, 2021 and expect to publish a second report.
