It was a special day today. In the fight against the tightening of the rules concerning the MRB exemption for vintage cars, a petition was just handed over to the Finance Committee of the Lower House under the watchful eye of Pownews.
Wouter van Embden offered the petition file on behalf of Vrijstellingoldtimer.nl with just about 27.000 statements of support from the old-timer enthusiasts. Of course we are all looking forward to the Pownews broadcast tonight, but here are a few pictures that nicely reflect the good atmosphere.
Handing over the petition is the next step in the effort to maintain the Van Vliet Amendment. The lengthy file reveals the economic consequences and legal omissions. It also became clear that the State Secretary of Finance informed the House this spring with incorrect figures. This resulted in incorrect calculations. This again resulted in the agreement that was concluded with the 'alliance' earlier this year.
