VW deserves to suffer substantial damage, UK minister says
Head of Volkswagen’s UK operation apologises for the scandal, saying a third of vehicles to be recalled in Britain need significant repairs
Volkswagen deserves to suffer “substantial damage” because of the diesel emissions scandal that has rocked the carmaker and affected 11m vehicles worldwide, the British transport secretary has told MPs.
Patrick McLoughlin was speaking after the head of VW’s UK operation apologised for the furore and warned that one-in-three of the VW vehicles due to be recalled in Britain required significant hardware repairs which might not be completed by the end of 2016.
