German automaker Volkswagen has fixed 470,000 cars out of 1.2 million systems impacted by the diesel emissions scandal in Britain, the company’s UK managing director told lawmakers this week.

Paul Willis dealt with hard questions from lawmakers, some of whose constituents are angry that the company has not been fined in Britain and that drivers have not received compensation, unlike Volkswagen owners in the United States.

“Out of 1.2 million technical steps which need to be applied, as of today, we have applied 470,000 and at the present rate we are using these measures to 20,000 cars a week,” Willis stated.
