ISSUE 238: A couple of weeks ago I attended the All Party Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group’s annual dinner at the Houses of Parliament. While I’m not normally one for ‘junkets’, this is one event that I always enjoy. Obviously it’s not exactly unpleasant to be eating and socialising in the Palace of Westminster. However – and this is why I really enjoy it so much – everyone involved in the APPHVG is a historic vehicle enthusiast. But why does any of this really matter? The APPHVG is not simply a ‘club’ for parliamentarians who are also classic vehicle enthusiasts; it’s actually a highly influential body which can – and does – influence policy where it has the potential to adversely affect this hobby.
