The Government is not proposing to take forward a national scrappage scheme at this time in light of response to concerns regarding the deliverability and value for money of scrappage schemes.
government response details
Many vehicle manufacturers have run private scrappage schemes, enabling owners of older vehicles to get a discount on the purchase of a new cleaner vehicle – these schemes are entirely voluntary and it is up to car owners to determine whether they wish to hand a particular vehicle in to be scrapped. We have encouraged and continue to encourage manufacturers to come forward with further manufacturer led scrappage schemes as a way to help some owners of older vehicles to purchase a cleaner vehicle. These schemes are independent of the Government and it is for the manufacturers to choose how to dispose of the older vehicles. While we have been clear that we want to see these older vehicles scrapped to improve air quality, where a manufacturer receives a vehicle with historic value they are able to choose to preserve it. The Government has committed to helping local authorities support individuals and businesses affected by local air quality plans, and has invested £220 million Clean Air Fund.Department for Transport
