star this property answer text <p>Through the Strategic Freight Network fund, the Government is currently funding a number of investments to improve rail freight connectivity to this Port. The Government intends later this year to set out its priorities for investment in train services and infrastructure in England and Wales in the next five year Control Period from 2019. This will be informed by advice from the rail industry, Transport for the North and other stakeholders.</p><p> </p><p>Ports such as Liverpool are making significant private sector investments in infrastructure to prepare for freight growth. It is economically important that inland transport networks are also able to handle such future freight growth. That is why the Department is currently examining the sufficiency of port access and connectivity in England and to identify where connectivity improvements could support economic growth.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department has contracted an external provider to collect, analyse and report on the comments received from responses to the draft Airports National Policy Statement consultation, as well as the consultation on Airspace Policy that was run in parallel. These consultations closed on 25 May and we are currently analysing more than 70,000 responses, the vast majority of which relate to the draft National Policy Statement. As at the time of answering, the Department has spent approximately £458,000, excluding VAT, on this contract. The Government takes the views of the public very seriously and is considering the responses closely.</p><p> </p><p>The economic assessment of the Heathrow Northwest Runway scheme, one of three shortlisted schemes, was published in the Further Review and Sensitivities Report in October 2016 and is largely based on evidence produced by the Airports Commission. This followed an internal review supported by two academics under contract for less than £5,000, which concluded that the evidence base was fit for purpose.</p><p><em> </em></p>
