Ahern Information on Noel Ahern Zoom on Noel Ahern  asked the Minister for the Environment Information on Brendan Howlin Zoom on Brendan Howlin  the solution, if any, he can offer to a person in Dublin who recently purchased a second hand car privately that was imported unknown to him from the United Kingdom in January 1994, that was registered but not taxed and that arrears of almost £500 are being requested from him before it can be taxed; and whether arrears can be waived. [4664/96]

Minister for the Environment (Mr. Howlin): Information on Brendan Howlin Zoom on Brendan Howlin Under Section 20 of the Finance (No. 2) Act, 1992, liability for licensing and payment of motor tax in respect of a vehicle arose from the date of its registration in the State.
