CV Show 2013 represents another landmark in the Road Haulage Association’s efforts to get closer to the decision makers who, in effect, have responsibility of keeping UK hauliers on the road.
To that end, the RHA is pleased to announce that it will be providing funding for an intern, Sam Hargreaves, to work for the All Party Parliamentary Freight Group, chaired by keen industry supporter Rob Flello MP.
“Having an intern that can push forward the pro-freight agenda is incredibly helpful”, said Rob Flello. “ I’m delighted that the RHA have been able to support this venture and it means we can accelerate our plans to promote the freight industry at the heart of Parliament.
Also commenting, RHA Chief Executive Geoff Dunning said: “This appointment will give a real boost to the industry’s representation in Parliament and ensure that the All Party Freight Group can develop and deliver a meaningful action plan that will make our voice more influential.
“We are already in the process of arranging for Sam to visit Association members who will be able to provide him with a broad and varied overview of the industry, its many processes, the legislation and of course the conditions under which it operates”.
