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.
