Despite the recent restoration of growth in the UK economy, major economic issues remain in terms of low relative productivity and costs, delays and inconvenience arising from transport systems. Each of these can be addressed, at least in part, by modernising transport infrastructure such as airports, roads and railways. The Transport Select Committee has a wide remit to comment on such topics and also deals with health issues arising from vehicle emissions and other safety risks. The Committee has recently issued a report urging the government to provide a clear timetable for south east airport expansion. Louise Ellman MP, Chair of the Transport Select Committee will outline her views on the current key transport issues, and the need to take decisions.
