SPLIT: EU good or bad for UK transport?
The Department for Transport are seeking opinion on how the European Union helps or hampers UK transport.
As part of a review of the balance of competences between the EU and the UK, the government want evidence regarding transport issues.
This call concerns the transport report led by the Department for Transport in the second semester – spring to winter 2013 – of the review.
The objectives of the transport report are to explain how EU policies impact on UK transport and explore the current state of competence.
Department for Transport said they are looking for ‘objective, factual information or effect of the competence in your area of expertise’.
A statement from the Department for Transport read: “The influence of the European Union on UK transport is extensive.
“It affects many different areas – from air and rail travel to the cars and lorries on our roads.
“It’s not every day you get the chance to have your say on something as complex as the European Union’s influence on transport.
“But we really want to hear from you.”
The consultation closes on August 6, 2013.
