Written Answers — Department for Transport: Public Transport: Motor Vehicles (19 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) holds technical records for public service vehicles (PSV) which includes the date of manufacture and the date of first registration. However, PSV operators are not required to specify to the Office of the Traffic Commissioner (OTC) where vehicles on their operator licence are geographically based. Neither the DVSA nor the OTC can therefore...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport: Licensing (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: In the first Transport questions since the beginning of the year, the Year of Engineering, I would like to put on record my thanks to my right hon. Friend the Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes) and my hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool North and Cleveleys (Paul Maynard) for all the work that they have done. The Government want to protect as many community transport...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport: Licensing (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: I do not recognise the description that the hon. Gentleman gives. I have been up and down the country talking to community transport schemes. It is not at all clear that the implication for local community transport operators will be anything like as severe as has been suggested, and the one case that has been tested has been referred back for further evidence gathering.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport: Licensing (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: The consultation will be taking place in any event, and the details will be announced shortly. I greatly enjoyed my visit to see the Our Bus group, which is a model of good practice in local community transport.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport: Licensing (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for welcoming me to my job. I have actually been in it for a while, so I am sorry not to have made more impact on him, if not on the sector. In that regard, he will have seen—I am sure he has noted it carefully—the testimony that I and one of my officials gave to the Transport Committee, which put to rest the question of whether the letter was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport: Licensing (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: The traffic commissioners are acting speedily and effectively and as a unified group on this issue. I expect the consultation to continue to give—through the proposed exemptions and workarounds that we have been looking at—further comfort to the sector.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Links: Kent and the South-east (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: Highways England is making good progress with upgrades on the A2-M2 corridor to improve links to Medway and Kent, and the preferred routes for the A2 Bean and Ebbsfleet junction upgrades were announced in 2017.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Links: Kent and the South-east (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: As my hon. Friend will be aware, the lower Thames crossing is a transformational strategic road project with enormous benefits to Medway and to the region as a whole. We announced the preferred route last year, and we are now developing it further. On the local transport side, it is worth noting that the South East local enterprise partnership has secured nearly £600 million of funding...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Links: Kent and the South-east (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: I would be delighted to come with the hon. Lady to meet the residents of Botley and to discuss these concerns.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Links: Kent and the South-east (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: I am very sorry to hear the news of the crash last week. I would be delighted, as always, to meet my hon. Friend and Kent County Council. She should know this is a topic of great interest to me and the Department. Indeed, I met freight operators only this week in part to discuss these very issues.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: the North (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: As my hon. Friend will know, the Government are very committed to the northern powerhouse, and to giving the great towns and cities of the north of England more say over transport investment through Transport for the North. This Government are spending more than £13 billion to transform transport across the region—the biggest investment of its kind in the region for a generation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: the North (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: I share my hon. Friend’s pleasure at the potential expansion of air services there, as elsewhere in the country. He should be aware that Greater Anglia provides train services from Southend Airport to London, and the entire franchise fleet is to be renewed, with more than 1,000 state-of-the-art vehicles and with the existing fleet retired by the end of 2020. That, combined with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: the North (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: As the hon. Gentleman will be aware, there has been no bail-out. [Laughter.] I notice that Opposition Members are happy to quote from The Times, and may I remind them that the Secretary of State responded to the scurrilous editorial piece with a letter of his own setting out the position? There has been no bail-out of any kind.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: the North (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: I certainly share the hon. Gentleman’s commitment to the fact that the north goes beyond the northern powerhouse—of course, I entirely agree with him on that. That is why the Government are involved with the borderlands growth deal, the precise point of which is to work with local authorities on both sides of the border. He will be aware that the high-level proposition to the UK...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: the North (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: As the hon. Gentleman will be aware, there has been a fiscal settlement which has changed over time, very much in consultation with and with the support of the Scottish Government. Of course, any changes to UK funding in England will be followed by Barnett consequentials, with an impact in Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: the North (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: The hon. Lady will be aware that this Government have made it clear that anyone turning up to work on those schemes through subcontractors will continue to be paid in the normal way. It is important to get that message out there, and not to spread misinformation or misunderstanding about it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: the North (18 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: Had the hon. Lady done her homework, she would know that there is almost no exposure to the rail sector through the companies that she mentioned. The fact of the matter is that the contracts have often been reinforced and proofed. Certainly on the road side, which I obviously know best—I can refer her question to the rail Minister—we have joint-venture partners that are jointly...
