Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

Enabling provisions to facilitate implementation of European Parliament and Council Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles were incorporated in the Protection of the Environment Act 2003. It is my intention to make regulations fully transposing the directive's provisions and facilitating its implementation as soon as possible.
