May Update: Transport

14 May 2018

What's on the agenda this month

by Matthew Bentley, Monitoring Consultant

The beginning of May saw Network Rail launch their Digital Railway Strategy while the Department for Transport announced a review into Network Rail’s tree cutting programme. Both these issues are likely to be raised at the next Transport Questions on Thursday 24 May where ministers are also likely to face questions about the future of the East Coast franchise.

May will also see a number of relatively uncontroversial transport Bill continue to make progress through Parliament with MPs debating the Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill and Peers debating the Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill.

Meanwhile the Transport Committee will continue hearing evidence as part of their inquiry into Mobility as a Service while the Public Accounts Committee may announce an inquiry into the cancellation of rail electrification projects.
