Transport Committee inquiry - response

The Transport Select Committee has launched an inquiry into the licencing arrangements for community transport in light of the Department for Transport's 31st July letter on Section 19/22 Permits and driver licencing.

You can find out more about the enquiry here and you can find out more about the role of the Transport Select Committee here.

Please note that this is not the Department for Transport's consultation mentioned in the Department's 31st July letter. CTA will update members when this has been launched.

CTA will be sharing a blog from Chief Executive Bill Freeman regarding the Select Committee's inquiry shortly, but you can find his statement on the inquiry here:

“We welcome the inquiry launched by The Transport Committee into the licensing arrangements for community transport minibuses and the broader sustainability of the community transport sector.  We hope this inquiry gives our sector the opportunity to publically demonstrate the integral role it plays in keeping our communities moving, and brings to light the contributions our members make every day in providing lifelines for the UK’s most vulnerable and isolated citizens. In addition, we hope this inquiry aids the Department for Transport in reaching a settlement which protects the unique work of community transport operators.”
