Mr. Robert Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the number of refunds of car road licences for each of the years 1985–86, 1986–87 and 1987–88 which were on first time registrations of new cars and the average refund value and the number of refunds and value to motor vehicle dealers in all cases.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
This information is not available.
No distinction is made between refund applications relating to the first licence for a new vehicle and those for other vehicles. The DVLC records are not structured in a way which would make such an analysis practicable. Applications from motor dealers are not separately identifiable.
