New CPT Legal Helpline
CPT members can now benefit from a new and improved legal service, which has been designed to support compliance and provide emergency cover. The benefits of the new service include 24/7 emergency cover (previously office hours only), the first 30 minutes free, a 10% CPT member discount on all subsequent work and a single specialist provider, Backhouse Jones solicitors. The Confederation has exclusively secured complete legal protection from 0.26p per vehicle per day through Backhouse Jones’ BACKUP scheme. BACKUP is an all inclusive service aimed at the bus and coach industry, covering advice and representation in Courts, Tribunals and Public Inquiries. It is available for a fixed annual fee, with CPT members benefiting from a 20% discount.
CPT President and MD of Ipswich Buses, Malcolm Robson, said, ‘I am so persuaded by the support and value of the CPT’s BACKUP scheme that Ipswich Buses has been the first company to join.’
Backhouse Jones Director, Ian Jones, said, ‘There is now no need to pay for specialist legal advice by the hour. Membership of the CPT ensures access to complete legal protection from 0.26p per vehicle per day.’
