I recognise that the wettest winter on record has impacted on transport links in many parts of the country. The Department for Transport is providing over £209 million to help repair damage to both rail and roads as quickly as possible. I have also appointed Richard Brown to conduct a targeted review of the response of the transport network to extreme weather events and for him to report to me by the summer.
