New EU rules for car and van emission targets in the making - Sunderland, 28 June 2013

What impact will they have on the North East economy and environment?

What road to take on the issue of car and van emissions?

The EU rules for car & van emissions are currently being negotiated between the European Parliament and the EU 27 Member States' Governments. Will the proposed new rules lead to lower CO2 emissions, lower fuel costs and spur innovation and employment in high tech manufacturing? Or will a revision of the rules, halfway to 2020, hurt the UK automotive industry and the 700,000 jobs that are dependent on it?
