Moving the Vote: Carole Ford outlines the Liberal Democrats’ vision for sustainable transport 

Published 12 March 2021 by Transform Scotland

We held the second in our ‘Moving the Vote: Transport Conversations with the parties’ event series yesterday, Thursday 11 March. A recording of which can be found here. We were excited to welcome Carole Ford, the Lib Dem Spokesperson for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity. Alongside Alastair Dalton, Transport Correspondent for The Scotsman/Scotland on Sunday, as chair.

For details of the other events in this series please visit our ‘Moving the Vote’ webpage.

The event began with introductions from Transform’s Policy Officer, Marie Ferdelman, and Alastair Dalton. Following this, Carole gave a short outline of her party’s vision for sustainable transport. She commented on the importance of regional decision-making, as well as the need to adopt a holistic approach to transport planning to ensure that it is the ‘easier option’ (than cars) for the public. She acknowledged that car use must be curbed.

The event was live-tweeted from the Transform Scotland account and can be summarised by the tweets below: 

 

Our thanks again to Carole Ford for joining us for the event and to Alastair Dalton for chairing.
