star this property question text To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 3 June (HL15919), what evidence they have for the competitiveness of airfares between London and Scotland; whether they will provide the figures for the cost of such flights which informed their assessment that “Scotland is well-served by air services into London”; whether they have conducted a comparative analysis of the costs of flights from Scotland to all London airports; and if not, why not. more like this

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>As stated in the Government’s response to the Transport Select Committee report on the Thameslink rolling stock procurement, bidders for Crossrail rolling stock were required to establish an appropriate local presence to manage the delivery of the contract and to specify from where each element of the contract will be sourced. The Crossrail contract was subsequently awarded to Bombardier Transportation based in Derby.</p><p> </p><p>The procurement of the new HS2 Phase One fleet is being undertaken by HS2 Ltd in accordance with the Utilities Contract Regulations 2016. The regulations require all tenderers be treated equally on a non-discriminatory basis. This means that HS2 cannot mandate that the design and manufacture of the new fleet should be undertaken in the UK. All parties invited to tender are required to make clear in their proposals how the manufacture and maintenance of the rolling stock will add value to the UK economy.</p><p> </p><p>The Government welcomes the investment in the UK through the awarding of rolling stock contracts to UK based manufacturers. Through the Rail Sector Deal government is working with industry to promote procurement practices that support an innovative, highly-skilled, and productive British rail supply chain<strong><em>.</em></strong></p><p> </p>
