Motion for a European Parliament resolution on the Volkswagen scandal: need for a Commission enquiry  

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas, following the opening of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) investigation in the United States into the rigged statistics for the levels of environmental pollution generated by Volkswagen diesel cars sold in the US and the admission of guilt and the making of official excuses by the German car maker, there is now an urgent need for an EU enquiry to be conducted into the matter;

1.  Believes it essential for the Commission to conduct an enquiry into whether vehicles manufactured by the Volkswagen group with engine management systems rigged to allow them to pass emissions tests have been sold/placed on the market in Europe as well;


2.   Maintains that the Commission should also look into whether other car makers have used this fraudulent strategy, and if so, when.
