UK: The House of Commons Transport Select Committee is to question Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps about the impact of coronavirus on transport at 14.30 on March 25.
As the situation changes daily, the Committee will be asking how the Department for Transport is responding to the impact of Covid-19 on rail, aviation, freight and supply chains and local transport priorities.
The committee said the ‘unprecedented impact’ of the pandemic had led airlines, rail operators and the travel industry to voice concerns about the future of their industries. DfT has been restructuring its operations, developing urgent financial support packages with the Treasury, and issuing guidance to workers in the transport sector.
