Latest statement from Karin Smyth MP, the Acting Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Trailer and Towing Safety
The next meeting of the APPG for Trailer and Towing Safety takes place in Westminster on Monday 3 February 2020.
On 18 July 2019, the Minister of State for Transport, Michael Ellis MP, announced to the House the publication of a report into trailer safety. This sets out the Government’s position as required by the Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Act 2018.
The National Towing Working Group (NTWG) Safety Framework has been produced to outline how Highways England and the other partners of the NTWG will address towing safety together and deliver their mission to reduce towing related incidents, both domestic and business on all roads.
Today, at the House of Commons, a new All-Party Parliamentary Group has been launched to raise awareness of trailer and towing safety in the UK.
