Guy Opperman: This Government has invested £410m into the Zero Emission Bus programmes since 2020, which has funded over 2,200 buses across England. The Zero Emission Bus Regional Area (ZEBRA) 1 programme was launched in 2021 and awarded £270m funding to 16 local transport authorities (LTAs) in England (outside of London).

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Bus Services: Shropshire (23 Mai 2024)

Guy Opperman: Most bus services outside London are commercially operated.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Bus Services: Homelessness (23 Mai 2024)

ENCTS costs around £1 billion annually and any changes to the minimum statutory scheme would...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cycling: Helmets (23 Mai 2024)

Guy Opperman: The Department recommends that cyclists should wear helmets, as set out in The Highway Code, and will continue to encourage children to wear helmets. A comprehensive safety review carried out in 2018 considered the benefits of mandating helmet wearing for cyclists of all ages but concluded that the safety benefits would be likely to be outweighed by the fact that this would put some people...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Driving Licences: Applications (23 Mai 2024)

Guy Opperman: The impact of His Majesty’s Passport Office no longer collecting digital signatures for passports on driving licence applications has been minimal.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Roads: Suffolk (22 Mai 2024)

Guy Opperman: In 2023/24, Suffolk County Council received £35 million of capital funding from the Department for Transport, an increase of 30% compared to the previous financial year, with much of the additional funding made possible by the decision to reallocate funding from the HS2 programme. The Department asked all local highway authorities to publish a plan on how they intend to spend the additional...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Active Travel: Finance (22 Mai 2024)

Guy Opperman: Local authorities already have a statutory requirement to consult on all highways schemes, including for active travel, in line with existing legislation such as the Equality Act (2010) and Road Traffic Regulation Act (1984).

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

Guy Opperman: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Vaz. You wait ages for a debate on bus services and then there are two in a day. It is understandable and appropriate that, for the second time today, I rise to my feet in Westminster Hall to address the state of the nation in terms of our bus network. I will briefly set out, before I am probably interrupted by a vote, some key thoughts. I...
