« BackIreland South MEP calls on Volkswagen to compensate its Irish customers

An Ireland South MEP has called on Volkswagen to provide a scheme of compensation for its Irish customers.


Deirdre Clune is a sitting member of the Commission of Inquiry into the Volkswagen emissions scandal.

The US Environmental Protection Agency, which uncovered the scandal in the United States, recently addressed the European Parliament in Brussels in relation to matter.

The Fine Gael MEP described Volkswagen’s refusal to fully engage as “an affront” to its customers.

She says an estimated 110,000 cars have been affected by the scandal in Ireland and is calling on Volkswagen to provide a scheme of compensation.
