'We'll continue to lead in a purposeful way'

THE British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association will continue to lead the fleet industry in a 'forceful and purposeful way', chairman Colin McLean said at the organisation's annual dinner on Tuesday. Over the next year McLean said the organisation would adopt the theme of 'building on success' as it continued to discuss key industry issues with Government departments.

The BVRLA celebrated its 30th birthday last December and in the 1990s McLean said the BVRLA no longer needed to clamour for its voice to be heard. He added: 'Nowadays Government departments and agencies generally consult with the BVRLA on matters that may possibly effect our industry.'

He pledged that the association would be at the forefront of forthcoming negotiations with Government departments in establishing the details of the Budget-proposed change to a company car tax system based on private miles. The BVRLA will also play a key role in formulating Government plans for a graduated vehicle excise duty system aimed at increasing the use of 'clean' vehicles.
