Written Answers — Department for Transport: Motor Vehicles: Carbon Emissions ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Department is considering how to collect real-world CO2 emissions data, including consulting on whether such data should be captured through the MOT, and will continue to engage with interested parties as the methodology is finalised. The data collection methodology must be finalised before the first annual report can be produced. The Department will assess real-world representativeness...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Bus Services: Fares ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The £2 fare cap is set to run until the end of this year, with the Government having provided almost £600 million to deliver the scheme. The Government will continue to provide funding to support the sector through our regular funding streams. This includes making over £200 million available annually to bus operators through the Bus Service Operator’s Grant to help them maintain an...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cycling: Accidents ( 2 Mai 2024)

Electrically assisted pedal cycles are included in the pedal cycle category depending on their power output.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cars: Insurance ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Whilst it is the responsibility of individual motor insurers to set their premiums and the terms and conditions of their policies, and the Government does not intervene or seek to control the market, we are engaging directly with the sector at an official and Ministerial level, with HMT Ministers who lead on this issue, to help us to establish if there are potential solutions within our power...

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, the statutory deadline for a decision on the lower Thames crossing is 20 June 2024. While the department always attempts to meet its statutory deadlines, I cannot comment further on what is a live planning application.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, this is a large infrastructure project. By its nature, it is very complex and requires years of planning, consultation and analysis before it is ready to move into the delivery phrase. It is important that the Government plan projects properly, are open about the challenges and natural uncertainty of delivering a project of the size and scale of the lower Thames crossing, and learn...

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: As I have said, this is a very complex issue. It takes time. It requires years of planning, consultation and analysis: it is as simple as that. Further than that, I cannot comment.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I recognise that this is a very important project. It will be of great advantage to many people, both north and south of the Thames.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: That is a wonderful history lesson; I am most grateful to the noble Lord. The majority of decisions made by my department and applications for development consent orders have been issued within the three-month statutory deadline that starts from receipt of the recommendation report. That will hopefully be the case with this.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Several references have been made to the Dartford Crossing. Approach roads from the west and the east are already heavily congested, so traffic would not be able to reach a new crossing provided at Dartford. The approach roads and the M25 are in a heavily built-up area; increasing their capacity would be massively expensive and require the demolition of many houses and other buildings. All...

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I know the crossing well and I am very conscious of the issues around it. It is a large infrastructure project, so we must get it right.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: It is a huge project at £800 million, and the current most likely cost of the project is estimated to be £8.3 billion. I will take the noble Lord’s comments regarding planning back to the department.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I am very conscious of the issue around the Hammersmith Bridge, but it is of course an issue that concerns the local authorities; it is a matter for them to resolve.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I note the noble Lord’s frustration over planning, but HS2 is outside the scope of this Question.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I recall answering this question from the noble and right reverend Lord some time ago. I cannot remember the date, but I will certainly look it up and write to him.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: No, I am afraid that I cannot.

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Standards (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Office of Rail and Road collects and publishes data on cancellations, reliability and punctuality of all rail operators, including Open Access operators. This is set out in the attached table. Table of Performance of Open Access Operators (pdf, 264.9KB)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: As the pandemic has changed travel habits, train operators are using this opportunity to reassess their services to provide rail timetables that respond to new passenger travel patterns, and carefully balance cost, capacity and performance. Timetables should be demand-led and built with flexibility in mind, so if passenger numbers increase as we continue to recover from the pandemic, we can...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Shipping: Energy Supply (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: On 22 November 2023, the Government published the Connections Action Plan (jointly with Ofgem) and the Transmissions Acceleration Plan. These reforms will speed up connections to the grid and the build of new transmission infrastructure in Great Britain. This may help unlock and speed up investment in new maritime infrastructure projects in Great Britain that are reliant on upgrades to the...
