The Department for Transport consulted between 9 June 2022 and 4 August 2022 seeking views on primary legislative changes required to effect rail reform as set out in the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail. 

The consultation covered:

  • core functions and duties of Great British Railways
  • new governance framework
  • reform of wider industry structures and processes

We submitted a response to the consultation on 28 July 2022. The response is in two parts. The covering letter summarises our views on the reform proposals and the connected non-legislative work that will be needed to implement reform. The annex responds to the specific questions listed in the consultation.
