The UK car industry has put considerable pressure on the government to introduce a scheme to encourage new car purchases and help support UK dealers and manufacturers.
When a car more than 10 years old is scrapped the government will offer a £2000 discount on a new car.
There will be £300 million of funding put into the scheme, which will run until March 2010, or until the government funding has been used.
