Dear Colleagues,

Today, we have submitted our response to the CMA consultation. NFDA Members should contact us if you would like a copy of this submission. In addition, we have had a meeting with our European body Alliance of European Car Dealers and Repairers (AECDR), we are currently working with them on a response to the MVBER consultation to the EU commission.

Further to this the NFDA, along with sister organisations of the RMIF, have written to Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP regarding the on-going rise in energy costs, and the implications this is having on our members’ businesses.

Finally, we have attached a write up of the Future of Automotive Retail Briefing, which we held last week at the British Motor Show, in this edition of the Newsletter. The write up consists of the key takeaways from each of the speakers, along with an attachment of their slides used on the day.

NFDA Is the voice of automotive retailers – if you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact your member helpline at 01788 538303 or email

Sue Robinson, NFDA Chief Executive
