I beg to move amendment 61, in clause 48, page 42, line 15, leave out from “effect” to end of line 16 and insert

“from the date on which the Chancellor of the Exchequer lays before the House of Commons a report of the review carried out under subsection (13).

(13) A review under this subsection shall consider the appropriateness of the use of the New European Driving Cycle methodology for calculating carbon dioxide emissions for the purposes of the provisions amended by this section.

(14) A review under subsection (13) shall also consider the effects if carbon dioxide emissions were to be calculated for the purposes of the provisions amended by this section using the Worldwide harmonized Light-duty vehicles Test Procedure including

(a) the effects on the operation of those provisions,

(b) the revenue effects, and

(c) the effects on progress towards the Government’s targets for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.”

This amendment requires a pre-commencement review of the appropriateness of the current regime for calculating carbon dioxide emissions and the effects of a change to the WLTP procedure.
