To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 15 February 2016 to Question 26170, whether his departmental officials conducting EU negotiations on behalf of the Government on the European Commission's Fourth Railway Package have a consolidated version of Regulation (EC) No 1370/2007 as amended or a similar equivalent.
Amendments to Regulation (EC) 1370/2007, as part of the European Commission’s Fourth Railway Package, are under active negotiation and therefore remain subject to discussion and modification. No consolidated text has yet been issued.
The Council’s general approach reached at Transport Council on 8 October 2015, is available from http://data.consilium.europa.eu/doc/document/ST-12777-2015-INIT/en/pdf.
Once a final text is agreed, this will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union. A consolidated version of Regulation (EC) No 1370/2007 as amended once the final text is agreed will also be made publicly available via http://eur-lex.europa.eu.
