Labour Minister slapped down by Labour Councillors

Labour’s Deputy Minister for Climate Change, Lee Waters MS, has released a written statement indicating that he will be delaying the Labour Government pavement parking consultation by a year. This follows heavy pressure from councils over his original plans.

Shadow Minister for Transport,

Commenting, Shadow Minister for Transport, Natasha Asghar MS said:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

“Councils across Wales are being forced by Labour ministers in Cardiff Bay to enact transport pet projects that are putting too much pressure on them.

“Labour’s transport pet projects have trumped creating safe, accessible pavements for all. Councillors are forced to deal with new diktats from Cardiff Bay, instead of focussing on the day job at hand, such as making sure pavements are wheelchair accessible.

“If councils weren’t under pressure to roll-out the 20mph blanket speed limit across Wales, imposed by the Labour Government in Cardiff Bay, then they would have the ability to concentrate on enforcing pavement parking, something we think needs urgently addressing.

“Councillors know better than Labour ministers what the transport needs of their local communities are, which is why senior Labour councillors have been so critical of the recent Labour Government roads review and the 20mph speed limit roll-out. Labour must end their transport pet projects so councillors can get on with delivering transport polices that improve lives, not bureaucratise them.”
