The government is considering giving credits of 2,000 pounds to new-car buyers who turn in their old cars, The Times reported on Saturday.
Business minister Peter Mandelson is looking closely at the plan, called scrappage, and it could be announced in April's budget, The Times said on its website.
Citing senior government sources, it said talks were at an "advanced stage."
And when Mandelson finds himself the proud proprietor of 'Mandy's Dodgy Bangers?
Who on earth would buy one from him?
You couldn't make it up!
