Detail of outcome

This report examines the balance of competences between the European Union and the United Kingdom in the area of transport, and is led by the Department for Transport.

It is a reflection and analysis of the evidence submitted by experts, non-governmental organisations, businesspeople, Members of Parliament and other interested parties, either in writing or orally, as well as a literature review of relevant material. Where appropriate, the report sets out the current position agreed within the coalition government for handling this policy area in the EU.

It does not predetermine or prejudge proposals that either coalition party may make in the future for changes to the EU or about the appropriate balance of competences.

Consultation description

We are reviewing the balance of competences between the EU and the UK - an audit of what the EU does and how it affects the UK.

This call for evidence concerns the transport report led by the Department for Transport in the second semester of the review (spring to winter 2013).

The objectives of the transport report are:

  • to explain how EU policies impact on transport in the UK
  • to explore the current state of competence in respect of transport

We are looking for objective, factual information about the impact or effect of the competence in your area of expertise. Anyone wishing to contribute to the review is asked to send their written views before 6 August 2013.
