Consultation description

Summary

The department would like to introduce new secondary legislation which will allow ministers to selectively relax the application of EU cabotage rules in GB - specifically aimed at non-GB car transporters at the peak car registration periods. The relaxation of the rules would mean that such vehicles would not be liable to enforcement action if they broke the EU cabotage rules during the designated peak periods.
