The Industrial Strategy set out six expectations government has of a Deal. These include ensuring that the breadth of the sector is clearly represented in any deal, explicitly including local areas with an interest in the success of the sector, and that any specific proposals clearly articulate the impact they have on specific parts of the country.</p><p> </p><p>The Government would expect these expectations to be fully met in any potential future Sector deal with the Rail sector.</p> more like this
