Grant Shapps "passing the buck" on fuel shortages

Reacting to suggestions made by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps that fuel shortages are a crisis "manufactured" by the public and "one of the road haulage associations", Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Business, Trade and Transport Sarah Olney MP said:

“Grant Shapps is shamefully passing the buck for the Government’s own failures.

“The Conservatives have repeatedly ignored calls from businesses to address the shortage of drivers. It is a bit rich for ministers to now blame the public and the road haulage industry for the mess we find ourselves in.
“The Transport Secretary should focus on getting a grip of this crisis instead of trying to duck responsibility.”
