Green attack

Industry should not worry about tax threat, says director

Published:  14 September, 2007

THE motor industry should not worry unnecessarily about extra green taxes being levied on the sector, says the director of the National Franchised Dealers Association.

Sue said the motor sector was becoming the victim of political parties attempting to appear more environmentally friendly than their rivals.

"The motor sector has become the target of choice for political parties jostling to be the greenest during this year's conference season," said Sue. "It is another cynical attempt to score points."

She said any potentially damaging proposals that appeared in the pre-budget report would be challenged.
