Rail Freight Group (RFG) is pleased to respond to the 2nd call for evidence for the Williams Rail Review. RFG is pleased with the engagement from the Williams Review team with the rail freight sector and the focus given to date on ensuring that any proposals work for freight traffic. In particular we are pleased to see rail freight included as a ‘fundamental’ in the assessment criteria.
We have previously set out the key areas the review should cover for rail freight in our response to the earlier call for evidence. This includes governance and incentives, retaining a national network and clarity on the role of Government for freight.
