UK: Government urged to act over cars

Calls have been made for the Scottish Government to “take action” after it was revealed that only 14% of its fleet of cars are green vehicles.

Out of the 208 cars the Government has, 26 are hybrid vehicles and three are electric.

The figures were released in answer to a Parliamentary Question by Liberal Democrat transport spokesman Jim Hume.

He said: “The SNP love to say that they are world leaders on climate change, making the most of every opportunity to talk the talk on the environment. However these answers reveal that the SNP are not taking enough action in Government to back up their warm words.

“With only 14% of their fleet either hybrid or electric, they are not setting the example that we would hope for from a government that has set significant climate change targets.

“The technology for electric or hybrid cars is improving and the cost of electric vehicles has dropped significantly so it would be good to see this SNP Government making more use of them.
