The UK should appoint a “snow supremo” to try to avoid another winter of chaos at airports, MPs have recommended.
The Transport Select Committee examined the impact of heavy snow last December which shut Heathrow, Gatwick and major train lines, and left roads impassable.
The committee said it wanted airports to be forced to plan more effectively so people had at least basic supplies.
It said a culture change was needed in the rail industry to ensure the welfare of passengers was taken seriously.
The committee said failure to provide information about rail services should cost those firms responsible money.
The MPs also called for a further £10m in funding to enable the Met Office to provide better long-term forecasts.
So say UK MP’s.
I missed the article in May. I wonder where the idea is now.
