Request for responses on the assessment of the Channel Tunnel Rail (Supplementary Provisions Act 2018).
The Transport Committee would like to receive responses to the Government's Post-Legislative Assessment of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (Supplementary Provisions) Act 2008 which was published in June.
The Committee will decide on the basis of the responses received whether to scrutinise the impact of this Act. We would be grateful to receive written submissions by Monday 9 September.
As part of a scheme to encourage paperless working and maximise efficiency, the Committee is using a new web portal for online submissions of written evidence. Written submissions for this inquiry should therefore be sent via the Transport Committee website- Please click the link here: Written evidence
Notes on the submission of written evidence
It assists the Committee if those submitting written evidence adhere to the following guidelines:
- Written submissions should be as short as is consistent with conveying the relevant information. As a rough guide, it is usually helpful if they can be confined to six pages or less. Paragraphs should be numbered for ease of reference. A summary of the main points at the start of the submission is sometimes helpful.
- Evidence should be submitted via the appropriate inquiry page on the Transport Committee website in Word or Rich Text format, with as little use of colour and images as possible. If you wish to submit written evidence to the Committee in another format you must contact a member of staff to discuss this. When making a submission you should include a contact name, telephone number and postal address. It should be absolutely clear who the submission is from, particularly whether it is on behalf of an organisation or in the name of an individual.
- Once accepted by the Committee, written evidence becomes the Committee’s property and it may decide to publish it or make other public use of it. If the Committee decides to accept your contribution as evidence we will email you formally accepting it as such. You may publicise or publish your submission yourself, once you receive the formal acceptance of your evidence to the Committee. When doing so, please indicate that it has been submitted to the Committee.
- The Committee will usually publish the majority of written evidence that is received, but some submissions will be placed in the Parliamentary Archives for public inspection rather than being printed or published online. If you do not wish your submission to be made public, you must clearly say so, and should contact a member of staff to discuss this. Though the Committee is happy to receive copies of published material or correspondence sent to other parties, formal submissions of evidence should be original work produced for the Committee and not published elsewhere.
- Committee staff are happy to give more detailed guidance on giving evidence to a select committee, or further advice on any aspect of the Committee’s work, by phone or e-mail.
Additional information on submitting evidence to a Select Committee is available online in the House of Commons Guide to Witnesses.
