Written Answers — Department for Transport: Motorcycles: Licensing (27 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Government welcomes and is open to discussing ideas for reform of the existing licensing regime for powered light vehicles known as L category vehicles where they do not compromise safety standards. While there are not currently any plans to reform L category licenses, Ministers and officials have met with motorcycle stakeholder representatives to listen to and discuss various...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Transport: Fishers’ medicals (27 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Secretary of State for Transport is today announcing an exemption for fishers from the requirement to hold medical certification for those individuals who currently work on fishing vessels of 10 metres and under in length. This new measure is a sensible and proportionate step that balances our obligation to protect the health of fishers with ensuring they can continue to earn a living in...

Renewable Transport Fuel Obligations (Amendment) Order 2024 – Lord Davies of Gower. Orders and regulations

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, in 2021, the Government began introducing national rail contracts, which have now replaced all the emergency contracts signed during the pandemic. These are flexible contracts, allowing services to be adjusted as passenger demand recovers. They include incentives on punctuality, reliability, service quality and customer satisfaction. Last autumn, we introduced a new incentive to...

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I have to declare that I am a regular traveller on Great Western Railway services and appreciate much of what the noble Baroness says. Cancellations, especially those made close to the time of travel, can be very inconvenient, preventing passengers travelling with confidence. When trains are regularly cancelled, this can disrupt people’s lives. That is why the department holds operators to...

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I take the noble Lord’s point. The Secretary of State visited Japan recently and looked closely at its operating systems. Let us hope that we see an improvement to the extent that we can operate our service equally well.

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: As the noble Lord knows, the rail reform Bill is being scrutinised by the Transport Committee. That was an agreement by the usual channels. From May 2021, national rail contracts were introduced to bridge the gap between Covid-19 emergency agreements and future competed contracts. The last two national rail contracts began in October 2023. Under the national rail contracts, the Government...

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My noble friend is absolutely right, and I quite agree with him. It is very annoying; I suffer from it myself when I travel on GWR. I really do not understand, technically, why we should not be able to do it. It is something I will perhaps take a personal look at when I go back to the department.

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, train operators are required to work to an annual business plan agreed with the department, allowing more agility for both parties to respond to change as it arises throughout the contract term. Train operators are incentivised to deliver for passengers by earning a fee based on their performance.

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I accept what the noble Baroness says. We have discussed this outside the Chamber, and it is something that the Government are working hard to improve.

Train Operating Company Contracts - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I can only repeat what I have said before in the House to noble Lords. The decision to award a contract to First Trenitalia was contingent on the operator continuing to win back the confidence of passengers. The Minister with responsibility for rail and officials regularly meet with FirstGroup and Avanti senior management to understand the challenges and to hold them to account for issues...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Standards (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: In the period 7 January to 3 February 2024, 66.7% of recorded station stops in Great Britain arrived ‘On Time’ (early or less than one minute after the scheduled time).

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Standards (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Department recognises that cancellations can be very inconvenient for passengers and prevents them from travelling with confidence. That is why the Department holds train operators to account for cancellations. The type of scrutiny depends on the reasons for these cancellations and the inconvenience to passengers. The Office of Rail and Road (ORR) publishes official cancellation...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: North of England (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Network Rail will be using standard industry processes to progressively formalise train service changes as the programme progresses, in line with the TransPennine Route Upgrade’s (TRU’s) key delivery milestones. The last stage of the fully approved timetables will be in place in the early 2030s when the full service uplift, which TRU enables, is able to come on line.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Compensation (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, when revenues dropped very significantly, the Government introduced emergency agreements that transferred day-to-day revenue and cost risks to the Department. These agreements protected services that key workers depended on. Under the agreements, the Government effectively receives the revenue and pays an operator’s reasonable costs, subject to the...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Oxford Station: Disability (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I understand that Network Rail has consulted with local accessibility groups in planning its current construction works at Oxford station. During construction, access within the station will be unaffected by the works and considerably improved with the delivery of the new western entrance.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Chiltern Line (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: There are no plans to reinstate direct access services from Northolt Junction to Paddington. Chiltern Railways used to run a twice-daily service from Northolt Junction (i.e. South Ruislip Station) to London Paddington. In December 2018, this route was cancelled with the closure of the Acton to Northolt line to enable High Speed 2 works. Chiltern Railways made representations to...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Shipping: Arctic (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: His Majesty’s Government does not directly monitor the safety of British ships crossing the Arctic Ocean. However, ships transiting these waters will be monitored by those States that have Search and Rescue (SAR) responsibilities in the region. With regards the safety of British ships in Arctic waters, the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) International Code for Ships...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Large Goods Vehicles (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency has not issued guidance about using ordinary carpet tiles to increase friction on a vehicle or trailer deck.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Large Goods Vehicles (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency has issued comprehensive guidance about ways to carry and secure loads safely on heavy goods vehicles. The guidance is available on GOV.UK under the headings ‘Securing loads on heavy goods vehicles and goods vehicles – how to carry different types of load in HGVs and goods vehicles’ and ‘Securing loads on HGVs and goods vehicle – ways to...
