Labour blames everyone but themselves for their disastrous blanket 20mph speed limit rollout
Responding to the exchange with the Deputy Minister Natasha Asghar MS, Shadow Transport Minister, said:
“In the chamber this afternoon I challenged Labour’s Deputy Minster on his disastrous blanket 20mph speed limit, but he attempted to point the finger of blame elsewhere.
“By appointing Phil Jones to review the policy – the same man who recommended the Welsh Government introduce this policy in the first place – Labour Ministers are marking their own homework when it comes to this policy.
“As far as I am concerned, we don’t need a review – we need the policy scrapped – as we can already see the huge damage Labour’s war on motorists is inflicting upon Wales by hampering people’s livelihoods, damaging our public transport network and slowing our emergency services down.”
