Written Answers — Department for Transport: Diesel Vehicles: Sales (20 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: The Government’s ambition is for almost every car and van to be zero emission by 2050. In order to achieve this, we have said we will end the sale of new conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2040. The UK was the first major economy in the world to set out such a challenging ambition for new vehicle sales. Our ambition is supported by one of the most comprehensive packages...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Shipley: Eastern Bypass (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: Top o’ the morning to you, Mr Speaker. The Government have allocated significant resources to west Yorkshire for local transport schemes, including £781 million over 30 years from local growth funding and other sources, but Bradford Council has not yet brought forward that scheme for funding. Our consultation on the major roads network, which could provide another funding route for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Shipley: Eastern Bypass (19 Apr 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Electric Vehicles: Public Charging Points (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: The UK is building one of the best global ChargePoint networks. Our new £400 million ChargePoint infrastructure investment fund will see thousands more charge points installed nationwide. We already provide grants to install charging stations in workplaces, homes and residential streets, and for buses and taxis. Through the Go Ultra Low city scheme, Bath—the hon. Lady’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Electric Vehicles: Public Charging Points (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: I am afraid I do not agree with the hon. Gentleman’s diagnosis of the situation. As I saw when I visited Nissan recently, electric cars are being taken up at higher rates than ever before, and the plug-in car grant has been an important part of that. As the industry becomes more mature—we are seeing greater signs of that; the new Nissan Leaf has started to have stable resale...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Electric Vehicles: Public Charging Points (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: As the hon. Lady will know, we have recently made a new £11 million investment in hydrogen charging, so she is absolutely right that we take a technology-neutral view and that we seek to encourage different forms of technology wherever available. I will certainly talk to officials about what information we can place in the Library, but I think much of it is already in the public domain.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Fitness to Drive (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: The current driver licensing arrangements take into account the risks that an individual poses to road safety and are designed to be fair and proportionate to all drivers who remain fit and competent to drive, regardless of age. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency keeps all its medical driver licensing policy and processes under review.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Fitness to Drive (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: There is no evidence—certainly none that we are aware of or that has been brought to our attention—to suggest that requiring independent medical evidence in relation to a driver’s health or eyesight would lead to an improvement in road safety. The current process is balanced and proportionate, and focuses resources on drivers who need medical investigation. Those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: That is a great question. As my hon. Friend will know, the pothole action fund is part of a £6 billion fund we are spending on local highways between 2015 and 2021, including £105 million for highways maintenance in the West Midlands combined authority, which includes Walsall. We ask that highways authorities provide a statement on their websites on how they utilise the pothole...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: As the hon. Lady will know, we have spent more money than any Government have ever spent in this country on tackling air quality issues. We are working very closely with local authorities, including Bristol, to do that. Something like £400 million is already in prospect to support local authorities in this regard, and we look forward to seeing further action by Bristol and other local...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: As the hon. Gentleman notes, we are in the process of seeking to apply EU law as it applies to community transport. We have launched a review to explore several specific workarounds that address the concerns that community transport operators may have. We look forward to the completion of that review, and we will be publishing our own thoughts as a result, based on the substantial input we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: My hon. Friend will be aware that the Government have taken a very important forward position by introducing the renewable transport fuel obligation. We are looking closely at E10, and at international precedents and examples as to how enhanced ethanol fuels have been brought into play. It is important to respect market dynamics, so this is a slightly tricky issue, on which we are spending...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: I have greatly enjoyed the chance to work with the hon. Lady on the issues that she describes, and I am very much looking forward to attending her trailer safety summit next week. The Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill will come to this House in due course, so we will then have a chance to look at what their lordships have said.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Tunnels: Pennines (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: The initial phase of work carried out by Highways England and Transport for the North, which sought to understand the cost and benefits of linking Manchester and Sheffield via a tunnel, found that while a long tunnel under the Peak District National Park was technically feasible, it was unaffordable and offered poor value for money. Further work is under way to examine the strategic, economic...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Roads: Lighting (19 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: The (a) procurement and (b) design of LED street lighting is entirely a matter for each individual local highway authority.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Large Goods Vehicles: Weight Limits (18 Apr 2018)

Jesse Norman: The announcement on 5 April 2018 followed a long period of consideration and review. It indicated that the Department will put in place a temporary arrangement for a period of ten years to enable mobile concrete batching plant to be operated in excess of the standard weight limits. The effect of this measure will be that relevant operators are provided with time to make any necessary changes...
