Jay Parmar and Paul Thompson from the BVRLA policy team recently met with Downing Street officials to take the views and concerns of members to the heart of government.
The meeting provided an opportunity for the BVRLA to emphasise the importance of the vehicle rental, leasing and fleet sectors in terms of both driving the government’s environmental ambitions and supporting the wider economy.
Top of the agenda was a discussion on the impact of WLTP on the sector and the BVRLA took the opportunity to stress the need for Treasury to take action to ensure that the fleet sector is not adversely affected.
Other key areas of discussion included the economy and the role of the rental and leasing sector in getting people, goods and services around the UK, the future of mobility and the need for EV infrastructure.
