The Draft Local Transport Bill and the Transport Innovation Fund
HC 692-I, Ninth Report of Session 2006-07 – Volume I: Report, Together with Formal Minutes
- House of Commons – Transport Committee
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The Draft Local Transport Bill ('Strengthening Local Delivery: The Draft Local Transport Bill (Cm. 7043)' ISBN 0101704321) consists of a package of measures intended to promote stronger joint working between local authorities and bus operators, to support the introduction of local road pricing schemes, and to enable changes to be made to local transport governance. 'The Draft Local Transport Bill and the Transport Innovation Fund (HC 692-I)' follows the structure of the Draft Bill and, although the remarks are related to specific clauses, some of the recommendations have a more general application.
Included with the report is consideration of the Transport Innovation Fund, which is closely linked to congestion and the Draft Bill. The Committee is unhappy that at the end of their inquiry the Secretary of State announced further consultation on parts of the Bill related to the powers and status of the traffic commissioners on reform of the Bus Service Operators' Grant and transitional arrangements for quality contract schemes.
