Ban fossil fuel cars by 2030 – MP


22 August 2020

The government should ban the sale of new internal combustion engine cars and vans by 2030, says a report published by the One Nation Conservatives grouping of MPs. 

The Government consulted this spring on phasing out the sales of new petrol, diesel and hybrid cars and vans (LTT 06 Mar). The Prime Minister said in February that the date could be 2035, or earlier if feasible. The Committee on Climate Change has recommended 2030.

Ruth Edwards, the MP for Rushcliffe, endorses the 2030 phase-out date in her contribution to the One Nation group’s wider report on environmental policy. Her paper refers three times to phasing out internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030. LTT assumes she  means sales of new vehicles. 

A separate policy paper on cycling by Selaine Saxby, the MP for North Devon, calls for more car-free zones around schools at drop-off and pick-up times, safer junctions, schemes to cut the cost of e-bikes, and “tougher financial penalties for dangerous drivers”.
