AN MP is demanding an end to court action against the West Yorkshire paramedic facing charges for speeding while transporting a donor organ.
Mike Wood, Labour MP for Batley and Spen, is taking up Mike Ferguson's case with the Home Secretary and the Crown Prosecution Service.
Mr Wood aims to highlight the need to eliminate anomalies in the law which have allowed the prosecution to come about.
He will also stress the lack of public interest in pursuing a conviction.
Mr Ferguson, 56, of Birkenshaw, is a senior driver with the West Yorkshire ambulance service.
He is accused of driving a marked vehicle with blue flashing lights at 104mph while delivering a liver from St James's Hospital in Leeds for a transplant at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.
A trial date has been set for October 20 in Grantham, Lincolnshire.
Mr Wood said: "My constituent was caught while doing his extremely important job by an anomaly in the law and the actions of Lincolnshire police and the local CPS.
"Having met Mike Ferguson and representatives of his union, the GMB, I am going to approach Government ministers and see if there is any way this can be resolved without it going to court."
Mr Wood said the law was out of date and did not reflect developments in the way the ambulance service operates.
He will write to Home Secretary David Blunkett about the need to update the law, to protect emergency service drivers from action and to the CPS to raise his concerns about the sense in pursuing a conviction.
Mr Wood added:
"It would be in no one's interests for emergency services staff to have the additional worry of constantly watching their speed."
