Public invited to suggest subjects for inquiries

Transport Committee invites ideas for future inquiries

On 16 January 2014 the Transport Committee invited the public to suggest subjects for inquiries to take place later in the year. Unfortunately we have had to shorten the deadline for submissions. Please could you send your ideas to us by Wednesday 5 February 2014.

Topics should relate to the work of the Department for Transport or one of its related bodies, such as the Highways Agency, Maritime and Coastguard Agency or Network Rail.

The Committee Chair, Louise Ellman MP, has said:

"If you have an issue which you think we should look at we would like to hear from you. Please write to us, email or Twitter

Your suggestions will be important in shaping our future work programme. Once we have decided on which inquiries to hold we will publish all of the suggestions we received and what we decided in relation to each of them.

That said, I must also emphasise that the Committee does not take up individual cases and will not look at local transport issues or specific transport projects unless they raise issues of national significance."

The Committee last invited the public to suggest inquiry ideas in March 2013. The suggestions received and the Committee's decisions about its programme were published in June 2013.
