To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, who is responsible for digitisation in his Department; and what mechanisms the person with responsibility for digitisation uses to champion digitisation.
As Minister of State for the Future of Transport, I am responsible for the digitisation agenda, with digitisation of the transport system being one of my three core priorities - digitisation, decarbonisation and (tackling) disconnection.
Delivery of this priority is overseen and managed by a group of director-level officials, including the Department’s Digital Director, which is chaired by me. This provides the primary mechanism for championing this agenda and driving progress.
At an official level, a Digital and Data Strategy Board has been established to draw together the Department’s work on digitisation to ensure that it is conducted in a coherent fashion and exploits synergies across the Departmental group and the wider transport sector.
