MP brands bull bars as 'killing accessories' in call for ban

BULL bars have been branded as 'killing accessories not fashion accessories' by an MP who has introduced a Bill in the House of Commons aimed at banning the feature from all vehicles. West Suffolk MP Richard Spring introduced his 10-minute rule Bill in the House almost a month after the Government announced it was consulting the motor industry on proposals which could see some bull bars banned.

The consultation period runs to December 31 and, while the Bill has little chance of becoming law, it once again heightens the rising concern over bull bars. The Bill will be read a second time on February 13 next year.

A number of fleets have already removed bull bars from their vehicles including Marks & Spencer, DHL, HSS Hire Service, TNT and the RAC, while both Cyprus and Jersey have banned the accessories.
