star this property answer text <p>I refer to the answer of 3 June (HL15919), which states that the aviation sector operates in a competitive, commercial environment, investing to attract passengers and responding to demand when determining routes to operate. It is therefore not for the Department to carry out this type of assessment, nor to comment on whether there is sufficient competition.</p><p> </p><p>I can, however, confirm that CAA data for 2018 shows that the four largest airports in Scotland (Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow) have flights to two or more airports in the London system, with flights operated by multiple airlines.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the UK Government, in partnership with the Scottish Government and Dundee City Council, provide financial support for an air route from Dundee to <del class="ministerial">Stanstead,</del> <ins class="ministerial">Stansted</ins> through a public service obligation. Scotland will also benefit from an expanded Heathrow, where there will be further opportunity to enhance connections to the country’s biggest hub airport.</p><p> </p><p>This information, which is already in the public domain, shows that there is sufficient competition for air routes between London and Scotland.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government has no current plans to change the GB domestic drivers’ hours legislation applicable to drivers of local bus services. The existing legislation is both important and appropriate in ensuring the safety of drivers and others on the road. However, any further restrictions could risk imposing unreasonable burdens on industry, particularly as fatal accidents involving bus or coaches have been falling over time, from 120 in 2007 to 55 in 2017. It is worth noting that reported involvement in a fatal accident does not necessarily indicate fault or causation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>HS2 has the potential to be a transformative infrastructure project that will help to rebalance our economy. The report misrepresents evidence that by no means suggests that HS2 would exacerbate a North-South divide. The project has cross-party Parliamentary support and significant support from political leaders in the North and Midlands, in particular, who can see the benefits this project can have in terms of job creation, providing new apprenticeships and opportunities for large and small businesses, unlocking commercial space and regeneration and facilitating new housing.</p><p> </p><p>The project is already leading to significant investment in Birmingham and we expect it to deliver similar growth in towns and cities across the North. HS2 not only represents an investment in the economies of the North and Midlands, it will also add additional capacity where our rail network needs it most and the trains will call at 25 stations across the UK, as far as Edinburgh and Glasgow, which will improve people’s connections between towns and cities the breath of the UK.</p><p> </p><p>To present the investment in our rail network as an either / or between modernising the existing network and investing in new infrastructure is both misleading and inaccurate. In Control Period 6 the government is planning to invest £48bn on our rail network, this is in addition to HS2 and the emerging plans Transport for the North has developed for Northern Powerhouse Rail. While upgrading existing lines is essential, doing that alone would not provide the long-term capacity that is so vitally needed – HS2 will deliver capacity roughly equivalent to two new dual three-lane motorways - would lead to more disruption for passengers on the existing networks, and more importantly it would not offer the range of economic benefits that City Regions and LEPs have set out in their HS2 Growth Strategies.</p>
