Chamber invited to join Labour policy review
The Chamber of Shipping has been invited by the Shadow Transport Secretary Maria Eagle to join its review of transport policy.
In a letter to the Chamber, Ms Eagle said:
"Ed Miliband has launched a wide-ranging review of Labour Party policy. As part of that process, I am leading a review of the transport policies that we were pursuing during our most recent period in government."
The review will then move on to seek ideas and influences for new party policy.
Responding to the invitation, the Chamber of Shipping's Public Affairs Manager, Jonathan Roberts, said:
"We have worked hard since the General Election to develop relationships with each of the main political parties, so we are delighted to be invited to participate in Labour's review.
"We know that the most effective way of lobbying is not simply to issue a list of demands, but to work with parties and politicians to ensure they have all the information they need to make sound decisions. To that end, this review is a great opportunity for the Chamber to help Labour create policy that promotes a strong and stable business environment for commercial shipping."More Articles by Chamber of Shipping ...
