To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps he has taken to ensure that his Department's plans announced in June 2019 to increase freight network capacity in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal will deliver value for money for the public purse.

The framework that my Department is setting up on behalf of wider Government will both provide access to freight capacity for our critical supply chains and deliver value for money for the taxpayer.

Establishing a freight capacity framework will improve the UK’s resilience by providing public bodies with a list of operators who can provide capacity as and when needed, including in the event of ‘no deal’ departure from the EU.
