Latest on ‘Super MoT ‘ and a letter you may wish to send if your MEP is on the committee considering it.
The Transport and Tourism Committee (TRAN) of the European Parliament have now had time to look at the new Super MoT proposals from the Commission, so it’s time, as voters, that we make contact with them.
24th June 2012 will involve 12 major demonstrations, to coincide with the 12 EU Parliamentary Constituencies that exist in the UK. Action will take place on main routes, mostly on Motorways. Start time will be 13.00 hours. The idea is to create a spectacle and let people see us, so blocking the roads will be self-defeating. Instead we’ll leave the outside lane free, which is also important for emergency services
The IMCO vote, which is tabled to take place on 5th Dec, (as it was on 22nd Nov and 17th October and in June before that…) looks set to be taken before the MEPs have gathered the information that they may need to make an informed decision.
Today, (23rd Nov) sees the start of a new Impact Assessment into the EU Type Approval Regulation. This has been granted due to the incredible amount of work which has been done by MAG and FEMA and everyone who has written a letter or who rode on the 25th September.
We knew that the 22nd November IMCO vote (Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee) on the Regulation would be delayed again, as MAG, FEMA and the UK Gov among others, battled to secure another, more robust Impact Assessment (IA) of the Regulation that could see an end to the modification of power-trains and compulsory ABS for all.
