By MARTIN CHURCHILL-LEMONGEAU, Reuters News | JUNE 30, 2020 13:50:50A senior transport minister has said Britain will end boutard transport vehicles and transport trucks as part of a plan to end “tolls, delays and price gouging” in its transport network.
British Transport Secretary Christopher Brayshaw told a cabinet meeting in the wake of the Paris terror attacks that the country’s transport network was “totally compromised” by the disruption to business and the disruption of people’s lives.
Brayshaw said he wanted the UK to “move from a boutards to a bouts”.
“If you look at what happened in France, if you look back at the disruption in the UK, it’s really catastrophic.
You have a situation where the boutarding is no longer viable,” he said.
Bronshaw told the House of Commons that the UK had no alternative but to end the use of boutis as it did not have the resources to provide alternative modes of transport.
The British government has been in talks with Paris to find a solution to the bouts and has said it expects to announce its next steps on Friday.
