Ipswich Buses has new manager - just what we have been asking for

Ipswich Conservatives have been calling for Ipswich Buses, which is run and owned by Labour-run Borough Council, to employ transport experts, in order to turn round the current inefficient operation of the company which is losing so much money.

Ipswich Buses has now taken on Mr Heath Williams as its new managing director. He has worked in commercial bus companies since the 1980s.

Cllr Ian FIsher, Conservative Group Leader, said "We are pleased that the Ipswich Labour Party have listened to Conservatives on the Borough Council and taken the first steps in fulfilling one of the Conservatives' election manifesto proposals to bring in proper professionals."
