FLA backs clocking bid

THE Finance and Leasing Association is backing another attempt to crack down on vehicle clocking with an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons. A coalition of MPs from all parties have sponsored the early day motion proposing the establishment of a national register of vehicle ownership.

The FLA is convinced such a register would be the most important consumer protection measure ever introduced in the motor market and is urging all MPs to back the proposals in a bid to pressurise the Government into action.

FLA director general Martin Hall said the scheme would be self-financing and possibly administered by the two existing sources of used car histories - HPI Equifax and CCN Motorfile at a small cost to the consumer. As well as including information on whether a car has been reported stolen or written off, the register could also be used to record mileages to prevent clocking and details of MoT tests to prevent theft and forgery of certificates.
