A LABOUR MP has made a Commons demand for changes to the law after an ambulance driver faced a speeding charge.
Mike Wood, MP for Batley and Spen, hopes to gain all-party support for his early day motion.
His move comes after West Yorkshire ambulance driver Mike Ferguson was charged with speeding after driving at more than 100mph through Lincolnshire while transporting a liver by car from a donor in Leeds to a hospital in Cambridgeshire.
The case was subsequently dropped.
Mr Wood wants to make sure similar charges cannot be brought in the future.
He said he would be looking for opinion and advice from all sides.
Mr Wood said: "The law has not kept abreast of changes in the way our emergency services work.
"It is this which must be rectified."
Cases such as Mr Ferguson's were rare but could happen at any time to a public servant going about their duty of saving lives, said Mr Wood.
He added: "The early day motion will offer MPs a chance to express their opinion on the issue."
