To ask Her Majesty's Government what action they are taking to advise potential recipients of state aid in the transport sector of recipients' obligations to ensure (1) compliance with (a) EU, and (b) UK, legislation on state aid; (2) compliance (a) within a transport mode, and (b) between modes; and (3) repayment of any aid found to be in contravention of those rules.

The Department has designed any support for the transport sector to be compliant with all relevant legislation and international obligations, which place requirements on authorities rather than recipients. Relevant obligations will be imposed on recipients as condition of support where necessary. Officials also work closely with recipients of aid to make them aware of their contractual responsibilities, which are designed to ensure that the UK is compliant with its obligations.
