PETITION FOR MANDATORY LICENCING OF ALL VEHICLE WASH TYPES
We think you should care about unregulated car washing because...
The are 26,900 hand, mobile and contract valeting washes across the UK, and our research shows that 90% of them have significant issues with Modern Slavery, Environmental Damage, Health and Safety and tax evasion, which we think is a disgrace, because this is the UK and we are better than that!
It costs £Billions of tax payer money every year to deal with the issues of unregulated vehicle washing and it is impossible to quantify the cost to the estimated 150,000 people that work within the industry and to the Environment.
Organised crime in the UK is estimated to be worth a staggering £37 Billion and Lynn Owens, the Director General of the National Crime Agency (NCA) is reported as saying "the current policing model doesn't work and needs to be changed". Our policemen and woman are amazing, but we need to help them by narrowing the focus Please sign and share the petition..https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/270114
