Andrew Gwynne responds to FSB figures on the number of pothole and road defect reports in England

Andrew Gwynne MP, Labour’s Shadow Communities and Local Government Secretary, responding to Federation of Small Business figures on the number of pothole and road defect reports in England, said:

“As these figures show the Tories must be held accountable for the sorry state of our roads.

“Huge cuts to council budgets have left local authorities struggling to provide local services and look after our road network, resulting in crumbling roads, vehicle damage and placing the safety of drivers and pedestrians at risk.”
