Enterprise Rent-A-Car says new government needs to commit to policies
Rob Ingram, director of business rental at the firm, said: 'As an organisation, and as an industry, we are working hard to improve the efficiency of business transport in the UK. This includes working with customers to help them understand the benefits of lower-carbon and lower-cost motor-transport solutions that benefit all.
'What we need from the new government is a long-term view, commitment and direction in emerging transport solutions. The last thing the economy needs is indecision. With a hung Parliament, there is a greater risk of inaction and confusion over vital industry issues and we would obviously urge against that. The danger is a less focused approach to emerging technologies and a temptation to sacrifice key transport strategies for short term political ends. It is important that a consistent vision is outlined and momentum maintained on these important issues irrespective of the make-up of any government.
'We are intent on investing our expertise, time and resources into helping to shape and encourage greener transport solutions for our customers, but we need to be assured of consistent commitment from government to implement well-defined policies.'
