Government Cars

Asked about the story of a Cabinet split over Government cars, the PMS replied that as he said this morning when asked the question, over the last two years the Government Car Agency had moved to greener cars resulting in a 30% reduction in average emissions from Government cars. We would now accelerate the pace of transition to low-emissions vehicles, but of course we would have to take into account operational and security requirements.

Asked if a Minister wanted to drive a British car, would he be allowed to, the PMS replied that we had to take into security and operational requirements.

Asked if an "expendable" Cabinet Minister would be allowed to choose a British car, the PMS replied that these things were looked at on a case by case basis depending on the security and operational requirements.
