95. Deputy Brendan Smith asked the Minister for Finance his plans to ensure that no registration taxation changes in 2020 will increase the price of cleaner, safer cars and new cars in view of the potential of a disorderly Brexit, the decline in the past three years in new car purchases and the increasing level of imports of second-hand vehicles; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I propose to take Questions Nos. 94 and 95 together.

My officials give due consideration to submissions made in the context of the Budget. 

As the Deputy will be aware, it is a long-standing practice of the Minister for Finance not to comment, in advance of the Budget, on any tax matters that might be the subject of Budget decisions.
