The Government reformed VED for motorhomes to encourage the uptake of vehicles with lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to help us meet our legally binding climate change targets. It is right that under the reformed system motorhomes with high CO2 emissions pay greater first year VED than those with lower emissions.

However, I have met with representatives of the industry and I am sensitive to their concerns. The Government is committed to levelling up economic performance throughout the country, including in Yorkshire and the Humber.

As with all taxes, the Government keeps the VED treatment of motorhomes under review. Any changes will be considered by the Chancellor and announced at fiscal events.
