In favour of clean air

I was delighted when David Wells, the Chief Executive of the Freight Transport Association in the UK agreed to record an interview with us this month.  The FTA is one of the UK’s largest business organisations and specialises in everything to do with transport.  Indeed, my old father-in-law was once its president. I remember with some fondness and a little horror, back in the very early 1970s,  the annual invitation to the Christmas dinner dance with my then girlfriend, dressed in her best posh frock and me feeling very uncomfortable in black tie, wondering whether we really could manage a Fox Trot or Quick Step or should just hide in the corner like the other 20-somethings. It was all very grand.
