Environmental Audit Committee critical of government action over emissions

VW faces tougher UK scrutiny as lawmakers call for action, reports Automotive News. The committee's comments can be found here. Because it's part of a much bigger document, here are the relevant paragraphs:

The Committee found that VW is only just beginning to recall cars in the UK. It also heard that the Serious Fraud Office and Competition and Markets Authority have still to determine whether they will take legal action against VW. The Secretary of State for Transport has yet to decide whether there are grounds for legal action— almost a year after the scandal first broke.
Mary Creagh MP said:
"There's been a worrying inertia from Ministers in tackling the VW scandal and they should decide whether to take legal action. They should ask the Vehicle Certification Agency to carry out tests to see whether, without the cheat devices, VW Group cars in the UK would have failed emissions tests."
