John Spellar

Labour MP for Warley

Stand up for Diesel Drivers

It’s time to stand up for diesel drivers says Midlands MP.


Figures released in the House of Commons to Warley MP John Spellar show there are over 11½ million diesel cars, 3½ million vans and nearly half a million HGV’s.

John Spellar MP said:-


“The huge number of vehicles show how absurd it is to demonise diesel.  We should certainly aim to clean up older badly maintained dirty diesels, but any policy should be realistic and not an anti-diesel knee jerk reaction.  Some newspapers should show more responsibility and the Government should show leadership.”
