New strategic body launched

A new Government/industry umbrella organisation has been set up to discuss the major strategic issues confronting the UK car industry. The Retail Motor Strategy Group will be chaired by RMI president Fred Maguire.

The RMSG will include representatives of both motor retailers and manufacturers, and has been set up in conjunction with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). The group will discuss such issues as the proposed Good Garage Scheme, and block exemption.

RMI chief executive Matthew Carrington has welcomed Maguire's appointment.

“With Fred at the helm, the forum will be able to make a real difference to the retail motor sector.

“The industry faces tough choices in the coming years, but Fred's steady hand will make sure that the industry holds its nerve.”
