MP calls for govt to update MOT test around DPFs

Date: Friday 25 February 2022

MP for Huddersfield, Barry Sheerman, has presented a Ten-Minute Rule Bill to the House of Commons. A Ten-Minute Rule Bill is a way that MPs can argue for a certain law to be made or changed. It’s very rare that MPs get the opportunity to present such a Bill, which means the decision over what issue to focus on is very important.

His Bill calls for the Government to update the MOT test to include an efficiency test for DPF filters with an emission limit set at 250,000 particles per cm3. This would identify dangerous filters and ensure that they are taken off the road and fixed.

"The policies and frameworks are there," he said "all the Government needs to do is update the law."
