RHA categorically denies accusations of creating fuel supply panic

RHA categorically denies accusations of creating fuel supply panic

27 Sep 2021 Posted By Kate Gibbs

The RHA wants to make it clear that it completely refutes the Mail on Sunday’s version of events.

Firstly, Rod McKenzie was not in the meeting where the BP issue was discussed.

Secondly, he is not the source of the leak. The first he heard of the comments was when journalists rang him asking for comment after ITV News story had been broadcast. He was not, as the Government source claimed, “aware of the comments” and certainly did not “weaponise” them in subsequent TV interviews. 

Indeed he repeatedly stressed the need not to panic buy and that there were adequate fuel stocks.

It is also completely untrue to say that the “RHA leaks every meeting we have with them”.

The RHA believes this disgraceful attack on a member of its staff is an attempt to divert attention away from their recent handling of the driver shortage crisis.
