Road Haulage Association - Working with May on priority issues
The RHA has welcomed new prime minister Theresa May and has already started working with the government on priority issues related to the UK leaving the EU.
'Brexit means Brexit', May has said. Now we need to define what that might mean.
In terms of general economic issues, the new government needs to confirm and clarify its position on major feature projects. Likely cuts to corporation tax are welcome but capital allowance investments will be needed to maintain investment by hauliers.
Members have stressed the importance of allowing foreign HGV and other workers to come to the UK to work. And there is concern over access to European markets and new Customs requirements.
We are already pressing for tougher enforcement of existing rules regarding foreign trucks. We are also raising the possibly of 10.5 tonne drive limit.
We already have meeting arranged with government this week and next. Comment and evidence is most welcome to RHA director or policy Jack Semple here.
