Paul Faulkner, chief executive of GBCC, Councillor Waseem Zaffar, cabinet member for Transport and Environment, and Stephen Arnold, Head of Marketing at Birmingham City Council, answered questions on compliant vehicles, public transport in the city, how vehicles outside of Birmingham may be affected, electric vehicle charging points and further engagement with businesses and the community.
