This can include subsiding a service so that its hours of operation are extended. The majority of public funding for local bus services is provided via block grant to local authorities in England from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. The Department for Transport provides £250 million annually through the Bus Service Operators Grant to support bus services and supports local authority spending of £1 billion a year for free bus travel for older and disabled people.</p><p> </p> more like this

Following the establishment of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, it has assumed responsibility for the management, operation and funding of the Mersey Tunnels. The Tunnels are therefore not the responsibility of the Department for Transport and there has been no recent assessment by the Department of any change to this arrangement.</p> more like this

Network Rail, HS2, the Rail Delivery Group, the National Skills Academy for Rail and TfL are members of STAT. So far, over 5000 apprenticeships have been created in road and rail bodies.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2017, the Department for Transport has used its procurement to drive apprenticeship numbers through contracts, including those within the rail industry.</p><p> </p><p>Manchester's Growth Strategy is looking to maximise skills to make the most of the opportunities that HS2 will bring to the area and sets out aspirations to develop a skilled workforce through close work ‘with the four Universities within Greater Manchester to provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills through higher apprenticeship, graduate and post-graduate qualifications in close partnership with industry.</p><p> </p><p>Rail, like many other industries, have set out their interest in developing a Sector Deal and have been working across the industry and with government to develop their proposal.

It is estimated that the rail industry and its supply chain employ up to 240,000 people and create up to £10.4 billion of GVA each year. There are significant rail industry clusters in both the Northern Powerhouse and Midlands Engine, including firms such as Alstom and Wabtec Faiveley in North West England.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to supporting local rail supply chains through our industrial strategy and investment in the railway. For example, constructing the Ordsall Chord supported 2,000 jobs and 200 suppliers. £80 million was spent with companies within 25 miles of the project with 62% of those sub-contractors being small and medium-sized businesses. It has been built using mostly British steel, with the steel for the bridge fabricated in Bolton.</p><p> </p><p>More widely, 70% of the HS2 supply chain are small and medium-sized businesses.</p><p> </p> more like this
