Orders of the Day — Transport (Wales) Bill (16 Jun 2005)

Stephen Crabb: I welcome the Under-Secretary of State for Wales to his new role and wish him all the best in it. With no disrespect to Members of this House and those of the National Assembly who put their efforts into debating and shaping the Transport Bill during the last Parliament, I believe that it is a modest piece of work that may do little to address the fundamental transport challenges facing the...

Orders of the Day — Transport (Wales) Bill (16 Jun 2005)

Orders of the Day — Transport (Wales) Bill (16 Jun 2005)

Orders of the Day — Transport (Wales) Bill (16 Jun 2005)

Stephen Crabb: I apologise, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am puzzled by how clause 11(2) will work in practice. Perhaps the Minister could outline how the Assembly will test whether a service would not be provided without its financial assistance. Given the existence of a pot of subsidy, would it not be rational for any company tendering for a service to demonstrate that there is a shortfall in its business plan?

Orders of the Day — Transport (Wales) Bill (16 Jun 2005)

Stephen Crabb: I recognise those arguments, but it would be helpful to see further research on the matter. If companies were thinking seriously about providing such services, one would expect that they would carry out their own market research and develop the numbers. I am also surprised by the wording of clause 11(3), given the heavily constrained regulatory environment in which air transport subsidies can...
