To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Earl Attlee on 13 December (WA 251), whether under paragraph 1.3 of the Annex to Directive 2011/88/EU it will be possible for an engine manufacturer to place on the market for use in the United Kingdom up to 16 locomotives capable of operating across Europe, in addition to the 10 capable of operating only in the United Kingdom.

The 10 locomotives designed specifically for use in the United Kingdom that Directive 2011/88/EU permits to be placed on the market under the terms of the flexibility scheme are additional to the 16 locomotives that each manufacturer is permitted to place on the market anywhere in the European Union. It will, in consequence, be permissible for a manufacturer to place up to 26 locomotives on the market in the United Kingdom once the provisions of the directive have been transposed into UK law, subject to the necessary conditions being met.
