Walter Theseira on Small Motorised Vehicles (Safety) Bill and Active Mobility (Amendment No. 2) Bill

(Updated: )

In Parliament on Tuesday (May 26), NMP Walter Theseira raised concerns about proposed regulations for importers of small motorised vehicles. He said consumers may face higher prices and fewer choices if prospective dealers cannot get approval or are discouraged by licensing requirements. He asked if consumers can directly import such vehicles from overseas suppliers. Assoc Prof Theseira also said that subjecting component parts to import controls could affect competition in the market for servicing and repairs, and prevent consumers from sourcing their own repair parts from abroad.
