Motion of Regret on a Statutory Instrument
Railways (Interoperability) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 Lord Berkeley moved that this House regrets that the Railways (Interoperability) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/345), laid before the House on 26 February, will cost United Kingdom businesses excessively in operating a potentially diverging range of safety and other railway standards from those of the United Kingdom's largest market, and regrets the failure of Her Majesty's Government to demonstrate any significant benefits; and calls on Her Majesty’s Government to lay new regulations that would enable continued compliance with the activities of the European Agency for Rail to provide the best ongoing business opportunities for manufacturers, rail passengers and freight customers in the United Kingdom; continued and consistent safety improvements; and reduced manufacturing costs as a result of one common set of standards across Europe. After debate, the motion was disagreed to (see division).
