NFDA continues campaign against clocking

The National Franchised Dealers Association is continuing to lobby MPs about the peril of clocking.

Neil Addley, managing director of the NFDA Trusted Dealers used car website, met with Andrew Jones MP, the parliamentary under secretary of state for transport, to discuss issues around the motor trade, including odometer fraud, which he recognised as an area of immediate concern.

The NFDA launched a campaign last September to outlaw mileage correction companies by 2018.

Following an investigation in March by The Sun newspaper, business minister Anna Soubry has pledged a law change to close the loophole.

Addley said: “With so many issues surrounding clocked cars, we are keen to see the Government act to ensure that consumers are protected from buying a potentially dangerous vehicle and look forward to seeing stricter laws tackling the dozens of firms offering this service across the UK.
