On behalf of the Chair, Karin Smyth MP, members are invited to the first virtual meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Trailer and Towing Safety on Monday 6th July 2020 between 12.00 and 1.00pm.
The amendment to the rules for APPGs now provides for such meetings to take place via a digital communication platform and it is intended that our meeting will take place via MS Teams platform. (MS Teams makes it possible to schedule a meeting with anyone with a valid email address even if they are outside the host’s organisation.)
Once you have confirmed you are available to join the meeting, a personal meeting link together with the final agenda of business and the minutes of the last meeting in February, will be sent.
The meeting will pick up on the issues considered back in February, including any updates on the key elements in the trailer safety report including data collection and the DVSA best practice guide. A presentation from the British Horse Society which will reference their recent survey on equine transportation and towing safety.
Crucially the meeting will also provide members with an opportunity to air any relevant issues, concerns or matters especially following the COVID-19 pandemic.
