unstar this property answer text <p>Decisions on how best to co-ordinate bus and rail services are best tackled locally. The needs of all public transport users must be taken into account when considering how to manage the different public transport networks. Changes at one station or location may benefit passengers there but may be a disadvantage to passengers further along the route.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is currently in the process of building the Bus Open Data Digital Service which will serve as a platform for bus operators to provide their route, timetable, location, and fares data. This data can then be used by application developers to build products and services to help passengers plan their journeys, including onward journeys from railway stations.</p><p> </p><p>The Williams Rail Review is looking at how strategic planning can be improved, including at the local level, so train services and stations can be integrated with local bus services and cycling routes.</p><p> </p> more like this

Our forthcoming Bus Open Data Digital Service will transform the experience for passengers by making it easier for them to work out the best options available.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has committed to provide £150 million of funding to support the delivery of smart and integrated ticketing across local transport and rail services in the north. Transport for the North, working closely with my Department, is in the final stages of procuring a digital platform that would make data on fares available online.</p><p>The Government has introduced a requirement for new franchises to introduce ‘one-click’ automated Delay Repay compensation, to make it easier for passengers to claim compensation when they have suffered delays.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has also rolled out smart ticketing on rail - smart tickets are now accepted at rail stations across almost all of the network, with all franchised operators offering smart cards and/or barcode ticketing.</p><p>We now want to ensure that across regional and urban commuter areas, smart ticketing can deliver the kind of pay-as-you-go structure that is used in London and make journeys easier.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Legislation relating to the display of registration numbers and number plates already exists and enforcement is an operational matter for the police. Successful prosecution depends on the police sighting the vehicle on the public highway and establishing that an offence has been committed. Number plate offences are also included in the Home Office’s fixed penalty system. This provides the police with a practical and effective means of enforcement. The police can also remove any vehicle that is causing an obstruction, is likely to cause danger or is broken down or abandoned without lawful authority.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities have legislative powers to fine garages for leaving two or more vehicles advertised for sale on the road.</p><p> </p><p>The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency is responsible for enforcement against unlicensed vehicles and has legislative powers to clamp or remove such vehicles from public roads.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>I have received several representations from unions on staff being paid less than the Minimum Wage on ferries operating from the UK on specific routes, including those being operated by UK registered operators. The vessels are operating domestic and international destinations. Where specific vessels have been referenced by the unions these were not registered on the UK ship register.</p><p> </p><p>The current legislation applies to all seafarers working in the UK internal waters and who is a worker as per the definition in the National Minimum Wage Act 1998. It also applies to those working outside the internal waters if they are working on a UK registered vessel and are ordinarily resident in the UK and some of their work is in the UK. Seafarers who are not resident in the UK and are working outside the UK internal waters are not covered by the legislation. The proposed amendments will extend the protections of the National Minimum Wage Act to all seafarers working domestically in the UK territorial waters on all vessels.</p><p> </p><p>If a seafarer is entitled to the Minimum Wage than this should be raised immediately with the HMRC enforcement team. Every complaint made is considered by HMRC for investigation.</p><p> </p>
