BRITISH TRANSPORT 'HELD UP' NOT 'JOINED UP' - THURSO

October 27, 2003 12:00 AM

Responding to the CBI report published today, which claims the poor state of Britain's transport is damaging the economy, John Thurso MP, Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary, said:

"This report confirms what passengers, commuters and hauliers have known for a long time: British transport is held up, not joined up.

"The state of the transport network costs British business too much time and money, and causes British passengers too much stress.

"The last Conservative government left British transport in a shambles. But after 6 years, surely we can expect Labour to have a clearer view.

"Mend and make do is as discredited as predict and provide.

"We need a clear vision for our future transport system. Without it Britain will continue to bumble along."
