Diesel Vehicles: Exhaust Emissions
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the investigation by the German anti-trust authorities into German car manufacturers that are alleged to have operated a cartel and colluded to misrepresent diesel emissions; whether they intend to report those companies to the National Crime Agency to investigate whether any UK directors and managers were involved; and if not, why not.

Investigations into alleged anti-competitive practices are a matter for the independent competition authorities – the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority and, where relevant, the European Commission.
