Kerry McCarthy responds to Government cutting plug-in car grant

Kerry McCarthy MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Green Transport, responding to the Government cutting plug-in car grant from £3,000 to £2,500, said:

“It sends out all the wrong signals for the Government, only months after announcing a 2030 ban on the sale of petrol and diesel cars, to be slashing the plug-in grants that help towards the cost of an electric vehicle.

“We urgently need a strategy to help drivers make the transition to cleaner vehicles and to fix our woefully inadequate charging infrastructure.”
