What’s on parliament’s transport agenda this year? As a cross party body, the transport select committee plays an important role in scrutinising the government’s transport policy. Following the publication of Chris Skidmore MP’s Net zero review, transport decarbonisation will be a key priority for the committee. But how does the committee work to hold the government to account?
In this episode Alice Watson sits down with Iain Stewart MP, newly elected chair of the transport committee, to understand his day to day responsibilities, how issues like transport decarbonisation are picked up and considered by the committee, and how the public can get involved with shaping the future of the committee’s work.
