asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Written Answer by Lord Whitty on 18 February (WA 94), what steps are being taken to eliminate the disparity between the time taken to refund Vehicle Excise Duty for vehicles taxed as "Special Types" and "PLG". [HL1322]
§ Lord Whitty
DVLA staff have worked with operators to minimise delays, but Special Types refunds 195WA are for much larger amounts than for PLGs and are often made against licences for which applications have only recently been made. This inevitably extends the time necessary to process a Special Types refund application.
