Dear Colleague,

This week, the Chancellor delivered his Spring Statement outlining measures that will impact dealers. Although the Government took a number of positive steps, we believe more could have been done to support businesses as they recover from the pandemic. Please find more details in the news.

Today, the Government announced its Electric Vehicle Charging Strategy with a commitment to increasing the number and improving the quality of chargepoints across the UK. A reliable charging infrastructure is crucial to developing the EV sector and, as a result, further investment is welcome. Please find further details in today's news.

The NFDA Spring Ball will be back next week! We look forward to seeing many of you at The Grove for what promises to be an exciting evening. For more information, please visit or contact
