Official or company cars

Comment 15th March 2013

Any person who is employed in the public sector (either local or central government – or their agencies, armslength management schemes etc) and gets a car provided as part of their job, or gets funding towards a car, must have a car that is either manufactured in the UK or at least manufactured by a company that has some of it's range manufactured in the UK.

Furthermore, no vehicle funded from the public purse should exceed 1600cc unless there is a solid case for this ie: police PURSUIT vehicles (not for driving Chief Constables about the place), para-medic vehicles, MPs security etc.

Why does this matter?

Firstly, it would prevent UK taxes going to Germany (BMW / Audi in particular).

Secondly, it would help UK manufacturing.

Thirdly, it would make me feel better.
