Coronavirus: emergency measures for the railways

Non-inquiry session

This one-off session is to scrutinise the Government's emergency measures (namely the Emergency Measures Agreements and the Emergency Recovery Management Agreements) to support rail operators through the pandemic.

The Committee will question witnesses on:

  • the financial arrangements within these contracts, with a view to consider whether they offer the taxpayer value for money; and
  • how the Government plans to support the recovery of the railway.

While this session is a one-off oral evidence session, the topic is linked to the Committee’s inquiry on Reforming public transport after the pandemic.
