Labour and SNP at war on transport

Have your say

LABOUR and the SNP were at loggerheads over support for green forms of transport today.

The SNP’s Transport Minister, Keith Brown, urged people to swap their cars for alternatives such as walking, cycling and public transport in 2012.

But Labour transport spokeswoman Elaine Murray accused Mr Brown of “breath-taking hypocrisy”.

She said: “He would have a shred more credibility on this issue if he hadn’t slashed the budget for more affordable public transport and promoting sustainable forms of transport, like walking and cycling, in half.”
