Labour councillors see red over council’s ‘not so green’ vehicles

Figures seen by the Stockport Express reveal that the town's council tax payers are subsidising a total of 520 council staff cars, including BMWs and Jaguars, to the tune of £3,269 each; a total of £1.7 million annually.
Now the Labour group is demanding action claiming only 72 of the 520 leased vehicles fall below 129grams of C02 and labelling them "environmentally unfriendly".
The group says it wants to restrict the council from leasing any cars that generated over 120 grams of C02 into the atmosphere.
