When Sir George arrived by bicycle at the House of Commons on Monday, an unusual sight greeted him. Instead of the usual bunch of taxis by Members Entrance were some unconventional three wheelers.
“These vehicles are made in Tony Benn’s constituency, and the manufacturers were hoping to persuade the Government to give them a tax break as they run off electricity.”
Sir George was interested, until he discovered they were not designed for people who are over 6 foot.
