Malcolm Harbour wants more done to boost car sales

Malcolm_harbour_mepConservative Internal Market spokesman Malcolm Harbour MEP has called on the Government and European Union to boost the car sales. Mr Harbour, who is a former director at Rover, comments:

"The British government's support package might have been sufficient several months ago but it now fails to hit the target and address the low demand for new vehicles.

We need measures that free up consumer credit, create incentives to replace old models and encourage businesses to buy new commercial vehicles.

We seem to have forgotten the thousands of car dealerships across the UK which are struggling and will be relatively unaided by the government's package. Rather than bailing out our car industry with yet more taxpayers' money, EU governments should be helping to make those vehicles already on the forecourts look more attractive to hesitant consumers."
