FTA meeting at the Labour Party ConferenceFTA has held another successful fringe event as part of the Transport Hub at the Labour party conference in Liverpool.

Fair Fuel UK campaigner Quentin Willson was joined by veteran transport figurehead Graham Stringer MP, Cllr Malcolm Kennedy of Liverpool City Council and Rhian Davies of ACT TravelWise for a discussion on how a prospective Labour government could look afresh at fuel duty and its impacts on the economy and the environment.

Among other issues the fringe also discussed the impact of the Government’s spending reductions on local transport, the wider role of transport in the economy and how businesses can be more effective in reducing their emissions.

The final instalment of FTA’s conference programme is at the Conservative conference which takes place at lunchtime on Monday 3 October, in the Halle Room at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall. This is a public meeting and anyone is welcome to attend.
