The Committee is looking at the following issues:
The committee has requested evidence from a range of experts and service providers. We are keen to hear evidence from service providers, industry experts, business representatives, academics and consumer groups.
Providing written evidence
The Committee welcomes written contributions in English or Welsh, and asks organisations with Welsh Language policies or schemes to provide bilingual submissions, in line with their public information policies.
Submissions should be no longer than five sides of A4, with numbered paragraphs, and should focus on matters set out above. Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees.
Please send your views to: SeneddEIS@assembly.wales by 23 February 2017. It may not be possible to take into account responses received after this date.
Disclosure of information
Please ensure that you have considered the Assembly’s policy on disclosure of information before submitting information to the Committee.
We will use your contributions as we take evidence and make recommendations to feed into the Welsh Government's negotiations. We want to ensure that the new contract for rail services in Wales takes the needs of passengers into account, and that the contract provides value for money for passengers and the taxpayer.
