Future UK-EU transport arrangements examined in new inquiry

20 July 2018

The EU Internal Market Sub-Committee launches a new inquiry into future UK-EU arrangements for road, rail and maritime transport.

Focus of the inquiry

The inquiry will explore:

  • Potential UK-EU agreements on road, rail and maritime transport
  • Cases for divergence from EU transport rules
  • The implications of 'no deal' for the UK road, rail and maritime industries
  • The UK's involvement with EU transport infrastructure projects
  • Preparedness of the Department for Transport and UK transport agencies and bodies

Chairman's comments

Chair of the Committee, Lord Whitty, said:

“The House of Lords EU Internal Market Committee wants to explore the opportunities, as well as the potential challenges, that Brexit poses to UK transport networks. Customs arrangements have understandably dominated this area of debate, we hope that this inquiry will highlight the wider issues and help to inform Government and public thinking.

"The Committee welcomes submissions to the inquiry, and urges organisations, businesses and individuals to take part in the inquiry."

Timeline

The deadline for written submissions is 14 September 2018. The Committee will hold oral evidence sessions for the inquiry between September and November 2018.
