Tories try to wreck Scrap Metal Dealers Bill

Backbench Tories tried to wreck last weeks Scrap Metal Traders Bill the Bill sponsor Richard Ottaway MP has revealed.

What sort of mindset do these MPs have I would ask? This bill had universal support of the public and crucially the industry. The consequences in cost and disruption run into £hundreds of millions. Add on top the theft of historic plaques and artwork and in particular war memorials. Backbench Conservative MPs who tried to wreck this bill are simply out of touch.
