NFDA UPDATE: CONSUMER RIGHTS BILLBack

RMI2The National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) is encouraged to see that following continued campaigning for changes to the Consumer Rights Bill, the amendments put forward by motor industry representatives were debated yesterday in the House of Lords.

Sue Robinson, Director of the NFDA commented, “this is a positive step in the right direction, we will continue lobbying alongside the Society of Motor Manufacturers Traders (SMMT) for a better outcome for dealers in regards to Clause 24: Right to price reduction or final right to reject of the Consumer Rights Bill.”

Moved by Lord Clement-Jones

20A: Clause 23, page 14, line 34, after “Chapter” insert “—

(a) ”

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I shall speak also to Amendment 20B. I am afraid that I am going to do exactly what the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, did not want to do, which was to question the “one repair” point. I return to some of the concerns of the motor industry. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and the National Franchised Dealers Association have raised significant concerns over the wording of Clause 24 regarding “one repair” and the right to reject the product and demand a refund. These concerns are centred not on the principle of the right to repair or replacement itself but rather specifically on what “one repair” entails. This issue is of course particularly pertinent to the final right to reject in Clause 24.
