star this property answer text <p>Doctors play an important role in the medical notification process by advising their patients of the effect of any treatment or medication that they are receiving and whether they should notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). The DVLA will often correspond with a patient’s doctor, consultant or optician as part of the medical investigation to determine the impact of the patient’s condition on their fitness to drive. The DVLA provides a dedicated telephone line which allows doctors to discuss concerns about a patient’s fitness to drive with one of the DVLA’s doctors.</p><p> </p><p>A doctor may also decide to notify the DVLA directly about a patient’s medical condition. This is provided for in guidance from the General Medical Council, which states that while doctors must make every reasonable effort to persuade their patients to inform the DVLA, they may themselves notify the DVLA of a patient’s medical condition, in confidence, if the patient does not do so.</p><p> </p><p>To assist the medical profession the DVLA has created a dedicated form that may be used for this purpose. The DVLA treats notifications received from doctors and opticians as a high priority.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It should be noted that it is not possible to make year-on-year comparisons over these four years due to significant changes in the way that the data requested is recorded, in particular due to a change in travel provider towards the end of 2015/16. The change in travel provider has also made it difficult to obtain a full set of data for 2015/16 and prior years without incurring disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>All central Department staff, who incur most of the travel spend across the DfT family, are expected to travel standard class irrespective of grade except under very limited circumstances. With respect to air travel staff are allowed to book non-standard class flights if they are longer than eight hours in duration and with the expectation that the individual needs to carry out Departmental work as soon as they arrive at the destination. The majority of the central Department non-standard class air travel is incurred by aviation security officials flying to long-haul destinations around the world for sensitive aviation security operations.</p><p> </p><p>Aside from the central Department, the vast majority otherwise of the business class air travel is incurred by the VCA and the MCA. However, for VCA the majority of overseas travel is chargeable to the VCA's clients and so any business class air travel spend by the VCA will result in only a minimal net cost to the taxpayer.</p><p> </p><p>Similarly, MCA’s Marine Surveyors are required to survey UK-registered ships on a regular basis wherever the ship may be at that time and they have to fly globally to those locations. The cost of the airfare is recovered as part of the fee paid by the shipping company for the regulatory work, so therefore any business class air travel by the MCA will result in only a minimal net cost to the taxpayer.</p><p> </p><p>With respect to first class rail travel, all central Department staff must travel standard class irrespective of grade, except under two specific circumstances - temporary or permanent disability and pregnancy related reasons.</p><p> </p><p>Over the four years in question, data is not available from either all parts of the Department or for all time periods. In addition, for the central Department for the years 2013/14 to 2015/16, due to the way that travel was booked at this time, it is not possible to obtain a complete record of spend. Therefore it is not possible to compare the spend data from year to year.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>For 2013/14, available information covering the central Department, DVLA, VCA, DSA, the MCA and Highways Agency is: Taxi spend = £169,052 (though no information is available for the MCA); first class rail travel = £33,873 and business class air travel = £243,170. No information is available for VOSA.</p><p> </p><p>For 2014/15, data is only available covering the first 8 months of the year except the central Department does have taxi spend data for 12 months. Data covering the central Department, DVLA, VCA, DSA, the MCA and the Highways Agency is: Taxi spend = £153,246 (though no information is available for the MCA); first class rail travel = £18,477 and business class air travel = £110,188. No information is available for VOSA.</p><p> </p><p>For 2015/16, data is mainly only available covering the last 4 months of the year due to a change in travel provider, except the DVLA does have 12 months of data for all spend and the central Department, VCA and MCA do have taxi spend data for 12 months. Data covering the central Department, DVLA and VCA is: Taxi spend = £182,099 (this also includes MCA spend); first class rail travel = £5,479 (no data available for the MCA); business class air travel = £167,420 (no data available for the MCA). No information is available for the DVSA and the Highways Agency is no longer an Executive Agency of DfT.</p><p> </p><p>For 2016/17, data is available for the full 12 months of the year for the central Department, DVLA, VCA and MCA: Taxi spend = £191,307; first class rail travel = £10,503; business class air travel = £1,155,965. No data is available for DVSA and the Highways Agency is no longer an Executive Agency of DfT.</p><p> </p>

The guidance will contain robust standards that I expect all licensing authorities to adopt, to ensure that all passengers, particularly children and vulnerable adults, are protected when using taxi and PHV services. We will also consult on revised best practice guidance which will include recommendations to licensing authorities to assist them in setting appropriate standards to enable the provision of services the public demand.</p><p> </p><p>At the recent Westminster Hall Debate on the ‘Regulation of working conditions in the private hire industry’ I announced my intention to set up a working group to consider how PHV and taxi licensing authorities use their powers. The group’s terms of reference and membership will be confirmed shortly.</p>

According to the latest version of this plan, published in March 2017, electrification from Manchester to Stalybridge will be ready for entry into service from December 2017.</p><p>The Government has been clear about the affordability and deliverability challenges faced in the current investment programme. In 2015, due to cost increases and schedule delay on important aspects of Network Rail’s investment programme, Sir Peter Hendy was asked to replan the programme to see what could be delivered in an affordable and timely way within the current rail investment period. Following the Hendy Review, the funding available for enhancements is now fixed for the current investment period. A key aspect of this approach has been the ongoing assessment of investment decisions so that we deliver these improvements in a way that provides best value for taxpayers. As such, my Department and Network Rail are currently reviewing the most efficient way to deliver the promised passenger benefits on the important Manchester – Stalybridge – Huddersfield – Leeds – York corridor.</p>
