§ Mrs. Lawrence
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if Her Majesty's Customs and Excise has completed the review into the VAT treatment of vehicle repairs carried out by motor insurers; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Dawn Primarolo
Customs and Excise have completed their review after consulting insurers, car repairers, and motoring organisations, including the Association of British Insurers and the Automobile Association, as well as the Office of Fair Trading. The insurers' investment in productivity helps the competitive development of the car repair market and I do not propose any change to the current rules.
