On behalf of the Policy Committee Steering Group.
Chaired by Peter Hardy, CTA Trustee.
CTA’s Policy Committee is made up of members from across the UK. It met yesterday with senior managers of the CTA to discuss the Department for Transport consultation on the use of Section 19 and 22 Permits for road passenger transport in Great Britain.
The Committee share the deep concerns felt across our sector about how unclear and unworkable many of the proposed reforms are and are committed to finding a way through that leaves community transport in good shape.
They appreciated the questions, feedback and ideas we’ve had so far and we would like you to help with one more thing in the next few days.
We are close to completion in producing guidance to help you with your responses, which we will release soon. Before then, we wanted to check if there are any specific types of information you need or questions you have that will help with your own responses and participate in the events the DfT is running, if you are able to attend one.
We would like you to consider the following questions and respond to us by 14th March 2018.
After reading the consultation:
1) What are your top three concerns about the proposed reforms for your organisation and your service users?
2) What information and guidance do you need to assist with your response?
3) What questions do you have that you feel the consultation doesn’t answer or address well enough?
Thank you for taking the time to respond. Please send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org
