Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Finance (Excise Duties) (Vehicles) Act 1952 provides for an exemption from motor tax for ambulances.   Motor tax legislation does not define an ambulance further.     

 The decision in relation to the granting of an exemption from motor tax for an ambulance is a matter for the local motor tax office concerned, within the parameters of the legislative framework.
