According to their latest missive, the nine year rule proposed in the review becomes a ten year rule, and the fourteen year rule, becomes a fifteen year rule.
This, combined with changing the emphasis from when the vehicle entered the fleet, to when the licence was purchased, has done away with the nine year rule, (now ten) (nobody bought a licence from the CTR post 2009, as they were available far cheaper on the open market) thus the entire fleet will be subject to a fifteen year rule, making the age rule absolutely worthless.
They really are taking the piss out of the junior minister.
It would remind you of the popular tv show of the 80s “Yes Minister”, these civil servants are playing him for a fool.
