The Government published its consultation on the use of section 19 and section 22 permits for road passenger transport in Great Britain on 8th February 2018. The consultation focused on ensuring domestic legislation and guidance is aligned with EU Regulation 1071/2009 on road transport operators. An impact assessment was published alongside the consultation. To help build a stronger evidence base in relation to the potential impacts of the proposals, the consultation requested information from those providing community transport services as to how they operate.
