as promised here is the UK scrappage plan video!!! let me very first start off by stating this was very hard to ignore. Being a classic automobile enthusiast it was pretty heartbreaking to see all that prospective Saturday to rot in ultimately ended up being total scrap. Why are we still here? I have no concept it's something I would love to find out perhaps the government knew these ones were going to be valuable in a couple of years or possibly they're just the last one's to go through the crusher, let me understand what you believe in the remarks listed below.
A car scappage plan was presented in Germany on 13 February 1999 and after that in France and Italy. Following a record fall in car sales in the UK and associated redundancies accompanied by lobbying by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders on behalf of UK automobile manufacturers with assistance from the UK scheme was presented in the 2009 UK Budget Plan on 22 April 2009 by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Alistair Darling. The plan was supported by Lord Mandelson, the Secretary of State for Company, Innovation and Skills, and Geoff Hoon, the Secretary of State for Transportation.
In September 2009 a more ₤ 100m was made available to the scheme which was extended until the end of February 2010.
The plan had been due to lack cash during October and varies bodies including Engineering Employers' Federation, Uniteand the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders had actually lobbied for an extension which was announced by Lord Mandelson at the Labour party conference.
On 5 February 2010 the scheme was extended by a month to run up until completion of March 2010 or until the funds were exhausted. In the very same month the government revealed a ₤ 230m 'Plug-in automobile Grant' plan to offer a ₤ 5,000 grant towards the purchase of plug-in electric vehicles – the plan will begin in January 2011. A different plan, 'Plugged-In Places' will provide some 11,000 charging points in picked cities over the next 3 years.
