Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: What about all those cuts in 2010?

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: What is the state of the economy now?

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: It is a pleasure to speak with you in the Chair, Ms Vaz. I thank the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Jonathan Gullis) for securing the debate. I thank also the other hon. Members for their contributions. It is fair to say that the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North and I do not agree on much, but I have managed to identify some areas where we do. I join him in paying tribute to bus...

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: The hon. Gentleman anticipates the second half of my speech, because I will come on to that. Before I do, the criticisms by the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North are a tacit admission that we need bold reform. On the question of the hon. Member for Isle of Wight (Bob Seely), only Labour will be able to deliver that. Despite the pleading of the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North,...

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: I am enjoying these interventions because they are prompting the next stage of my speech, which explains exactly what Labour’s plans are for Government. In our first term, should we be fortunate enough to serve—I take nothing for granted; I am not complacent about it—Labour would pass new legislation to support local transport authorities to take back control of their bus services. We...

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: The short answer is that there is, because we recognise the need for flexibility and different options—[Interruption.] Hon. Members are reacting to what I say. Although we see the local franchising process as the presumed option, it is not the only option that will be available under a Labour Government.

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: I will finish the point rather than taking further interventions. At the moment, those powers are limited to Metro Mayors, but we will expand them to every local transport authority. We will also accelerate the franchising process, cutting it from the six-year slog endured by Greater Manchester down to as little as two years. We will introduce local network safeguards to provide more...

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: I am going to finish answering the previous two questions by going through our plans, if the hon. Gentleman does not mind. Thanks to our trailblazing Labour Metro Mayors, we know how effective franchising can be. London under Sadiq Khan has one of the most sophisticated and best integrated transport networks in the world, and Andy Burnham’s Bee Network in Greater Manchester is already...

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: I am coming to the end of my speech. The Conservatives have presided—[Interruption.] Okay, I will give way.

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: Thank you, Ms Vaz.

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: The Chair has told me not—[Interruption.] May I seek your guidance, Ms Vaz?

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: I think I have understood the question. We are going to speed up franchising and we are going to make it a lot easier for people to do. It took over six years for Andy Burnham to get through the various hoops and bureaucracies in his way, and we have seen a similar problem in the Liverpool city region. We need to speed up the process. It is going to be the presumed option for any local...

Bill Esterson: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what his planned timetable is for publication of the Low Carbon Fuel Strategy.

Transport: Road Resurfacing (16 Mai 2024)

Bill Esterson: At the last Transport questions, the Secretary of State suggested that drivers know what they are getting with a Conservative Government. Well, drivers know one thing they are getting from this Government: more potholes—a hundred times as many as there are craters on the moon. In 2023, RAC patrols attended 33% more breakdowns related to poor road maintenance than in 2022, and AA call-outs...
