Transport Committee Candidate Campaigning with Ivor and Thomas

The Westminster press pack might be swanning about the G20, but they’re missing the most important story going: the race for the Transport committee chair. By Guido’s count there are six candidates, more than for any of the other four select committee races caused by the Ri-shuffle:

  • Jackie Doyle-Price
  • Katherine Fletcher
  • Karl McCartney
  • Chris Loder
  • Iain Stewart
