Written Ministerial Statement on the removal of Vnuk from UK law

In a blog just last week I commented that we have yet to see draft legislation which would remove the effects of the Vnuk decision from UK law. While that remains the case, on 29 June the Secretary of State for Transport gave a Written Statement to Parliament (which can be found here) in which he noted the recent emergence of a Private Member’s Bill (PMB) that seeks to do this and he repeated that a slot to introduce primary legislation “will be sought at the earliest possible opportunity” (perhaps something of a meaningless phrase). We’ll keep a close eye out for the publication of either the PMB and/or any government legislation.
