Road safety minister to speak at National Conference
Road safety minister Andrew Jones is to speak at the 2015 National Road Safety Conference* where he will outine his vision for safety on the UK's roads over the coming years.
Mr Jones, who will appear via video link, will speak as part of ‘the big picture’, the first session of the conference on Wednesday 18 November.
The Conservative MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough was appointed parliamentary under secretary of state at the DfT, with responsibility for road safety, in May 2015 following the General Election.
Elected in 2010, he has been a Parliamentary Private Secretary on the health, business and transport teams.
He has also chaired the Northern Electrification Taskforce which provided the Secretary of State for Transport with advice on the next steps for electrification of railways in the North of England.
Mr Jones’ portfolio also includes responsibility for local and national roads and Highways England.
The 'big picture' session will also feature representatives from Road Safety GB, the National Police Chief’s Council, the DfT, CFOA and Highways England.
