Public safety has taken a backseat with this government – Karl Turner

Karl Turner MP, Shadow Transport Minister for Road Safety, responding to the government’s announcement that it will launch a consultation to ban old tyres, said:

“The government is finally taking action to ban old tyres on buses and coaches after Labour has repeatedly pressed them on the issue.

“It’s unacceptable that public safety has taken a backseat with this government behind the wheel.

“It should not have taken a relentless campaign by Tyred for the government to finally listen.”
