question text To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 6 August (HL17450), what sanctions against vehicle owners are available to the authorities when such owners persistently ignore penalty notices, but do not cause an obstruction which merits the vehicle being towed away. more like this

answer text <p>If the vehicle owner ignores their penalty notices there is a process of escalation in place that results in increased charges. Initially this can be registered as a County Court debt. Further failure to pay the charge can lead to the County Court issuing a warrant to Civil Enforcement Agents (bailiffs). This will mean added charges and Civil Enforcement Agents (bailiffs) taking goods from the vehicle owners home to settle the debt.</p><p> </p> more like this

Air pollution is the top environmental risk to health in the UK and the government remains determined to improve air quality. Our recent consultation on a new aviation strategy included proposed measures to ensure that aviation’s contribution to local air quality issues is properly understood and addressed.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) does not conduct roadside spot checks on lorries, solely for emissions. The DVSA does conduct roadside mechanical spot checks on lorries, which include a check for emissions control equipment (cheat devices). Over the last three years the DVSA has carried out the following roadside mechanical spot checks on lorries:<br></p><p>2016/2017 – 110,570</p><p>2017/2018 – 108,050</p><p>2018/2019 – 95,280</p><p> </p><p>The number of checks has reduced year-on-year because the DVSA now carries out targeted enforcement of seriously and serially non-compliant vehicles. Targeted enforcement allows compliant operators to conduct their business without expecting their vehicles to be subject to random checks.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

As such, while the agreement between the Secretary of State and Agility Trains West does not include a contracted level of reliability it states a number of circumstances, including failures of trains in service, where payment deductions apply.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Rail freight and ports are intrinsically linked, with most of the UK’s major ports using rail for onwards distribution. Rail moves 1 in 4 of all intermodal shipping containers which are imported or exported and 18 ports in England have a direct and active rail connection to the national network, with a further 6 ports having operational rail connections (but no current timetabled freight trains).</p><p> </p><p>Intermodal freight is now the biggest rail freight sector and the Department and Network Rail welcome discussions with port operators that wish to enhance their rail freight provision, particularly for container traffic.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has recently announced a £30M fund for port infrastructure connectivity in England – this includes potential funding for development of rail connectivity (specific schemes yet to be determined).</p><p> </p> more like this
