Labour responds to Government’s zero emission bus announcement

Sam Tarry MP, Labour’s Shadow Buses Minister, commenting on the Government’s zero emission bus announcement, said:

“Just two weeks ago when the Government first made this announcement they said it would help build 800 buses, which was already woefully unambitious. They’ve now scaled even that commitment down to just 500.

“If ministers are serious about tackling climate change they need to speed up our transition of zero emission vehicles, not slow it down.”
