answer text <p>UK ports and the UK maritime sector that rely on our ports, are covered by the Net Zero 2050 target and our national carbon budgets under the Climate Change Act. As part of the implementation of the Transport Decarbonisation Plan, we are accelerating the development of zero emission technology and infrastructure in the UK via a £23m Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition.</p><p>Building on the success of this programme, the Net Zero Strategy announced our intention to extend this to a multi-year programme, delivering real-world demonstrations and technology trials of clean maritime vessels and infrastructure to decarbonise the maritime sector. This is part of our commitment to a UK Shipping Office for Reducing Emissions.</p><p>We also support UK ports through other ways, including through the Freeports programme, which is already seeing green investments – for example, GE Renewables is locating its new offshore wind blade manufacturing plant in the Teesside Freeport, and Siemens Gamesa is investing £186m to expand its offshore wind manufacturing in the Humber Freeport.</p>

answer text <p>The Government strongly supports the modal shift of freight from road to rail to reduce congestion and carbon emissions from across the freight sector. This was clearly set out in the recently published Transport Decarbonisation Plan and Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail. Additionally, the Government is currently working with industry leaders from all modes to develop the Future of Freight strategy, a long-term strategic plan for the freight sector, which will include modal shift.</p><p>The Government continues to incentivise modal shift through the Mode Shift Revenue Support (MSRS) scheme, which supports the carriage of freight by rail and water on routes where road haulage has a financial advantage. In 2021/22, the Department allocated up to £20m for this grant scheme which removes the equivalent of around 900,000 HGV journeys off the road each year. This was recently increased by a further £500,000 to reduce the number of HGV journeys by an additional 29,000.</p><p>The Government has also committed to introducing a rail freight growth target which will help galvanise action across the sector and provide a common objective for industry collaboration. Further details about the growth target will be confirmed in due course and the Government will be working closely with industry partners to develop the target.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The consultation on the proposed changes to The Highway Code closed in October 2020, with nearly 21,000 replies received, and the Government response to the consultation was published in July 2021. Given the feedback received, we will be seeking to introduce all the proposed changes and will lay the revised version of The Highway Code in Parliament shortly.</p><p> </p><p>E-scooters were not part of the consultation on the proposed changes. E-scooter trials are live in 31 areas. The evidence gathered during the trials will inform whether e-scooters should be legalised in the future, and how we can ensure their use is as safe as possible. Until we have that evidence we cannot commit to a legislative timetable.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>A set of regulations is due to be laid in December. This will allow English local authorities outside London, with civil parking enforcement powers, to apply for a Designation Order granting powers to enforce moving traffic contraventions, based on evidence obtained from CCTV camera equipment that has been certified by the Secretary of State. Local authorities so designated, will then be able to enforce access restrictions for school streets. Local authorities in London have these enforcement powers already. Automatic number-plate recognition technology is not certified for the purpose of moving traffic enforcement.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Integrated Rail Plan sets out the capacity improvements that the Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR) core network from Liverpool to York will deliver. These capacity improvements equal those in previous proposals from Transport for the North, with over a 500% increase on journeys from Liverpool to Leeds alone.</p><p> </p><p>The IRP also confirms that a new HS2 line will be built from Birmingham to East Midlands Parkway, which will deliver more capacity to Nottingham and Derby compared to previous plans, and the same capacity uplift to Chesterfield and Sheffield. Upgrades to the East Coast Main Line will deliver similar or more capacity from London and Birmingham to the North East compared to previous plans, and potentially more capacity to places from London that did receive benefit under previous plans, such as Wakefield, Doncaster, Grantham and Peterborough. Leeds capacity will depend on decisions reached following the development work to assess the most effective way to take HS2 trains to Leeds for which the Government is providing £100m.</p><p> </p>
