30th September 2019

Sir Mike Penning speaks in a debate on the situation at Wrightbus in Northern Ireland and urges London to buy buses from the company.

Sir Mike Penning speaking in the House of Commons, September 2019, Wrightbus

As I drove through London to the House today lots of Wrightbus buses were to be seen, bought by the excellent previous Conservative Mayor. One intervention that could go ahead and make the company viable to be sold is the London Mayor buying the right bus for London, which is Wrightbus.

I do not think it would be appropriate for me to make bus-buying recommendations, but I say again that the technology of Wrightbus and the energy at Wrightbus mean that there is a good future for it if we can get a successful buyer.
