Members and staff at the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) are saddened to learn of the death of Gwyneth Dunwoody MP, Chairman of the House of Commons Transport Committee.
CILT has made many submissions to the committee and Institute representatives appeared before Mrs Dunwoody on a number of occasions. CILT Chief Executive Steve Agg said today: “Mrs Dunwoody was a unique politician and was held in very high regard by our staff and members. She had a sharp mind and an equally sharp tongue when necessary, but her vast knowledge and genuine warmth and passion for the transport industry shone through at all times. I know that I will be joining everyone involved in transport policy in paying tribute to her many achievements.”
CILT's Transport Policy Manager, Trevor Whelan, said; “Observing an evidence session of the Transport Committee was invariably a master class in tactical questioning with Mrs Dunwoody in the chair. She was an excellent Chairman and will be greatly missed.”
The Institute conveys its condolences to Mrs Dunwoody's family and friends.
