Dear Ms Gadd,
Consultation on the Convenience Charge for Credit Card Payments of Vehicle Excise Duty
Thank you for your letter of 22 October 2004, inviting the Association of British Drivers (ABD) to respond to the above consultation.
Of the five options identified, the ABD prefers Option E, which has the merits of simplicity, the lowest charges for cars and motorcycles, and a relatively modest maximum charge for the largest vehicles. We would prefer, of course, that no charge is levied at all.
I also enclose the completed response form setting out the ABD's response.
