Michael Healy-Rae Calls For The NCT To Be Scrapped


An Independent TD for Kerry says changes to vehicle registration tax and other budget measures mean the NCT should be scrapped.

Michael Healy-Rae was speaking in the wake of Budget 2021 which also sees carbon tax and the price of fuel increased.

Motor tax rates are unchanged for almost all cars – but the most pollutant cars in the post-2008 regime will see increased taxes.

Deputy Michael Healy Rae says it makes no sense to continue with the roadworthy tests for older cars, if people are being discouraged from owning them.
