We are clear that the disruption caused to passengers and operators by the disruption in Calais is unacceptable.

That is why we are working hard to find a long-term solution to Operation Stack, and closely with the French Government to minimise the causes of disruption.

There are no specific provisions for compensation by Her Majesty’s Government in the circumstances where disruption does occur.
