The Railway Industry Association can today announce that both Rail Minister Kevin Foster MP and Shadow Rail Minister Tan Dhesi MP will speak at the RIA Annual Conference on 10 November. They will both take part in the opening session, as the railway supply sector comes together to debate the issues of the day.

The conference is entitled, “Growing rail in a year of transition”, and is likely to include discussions on the current state of rail policy and GBR, long-term funding in tough economic times, certainty for major rail projects, decarbonisation, digitalisation, exports and trade, and skills and diversity.

RIA Chief Executive Darren Caplan said: “We are excited to have both Rail Minister Kevin Foster MP and Shadow Rail Minister Tan Dhesi MP speaking at the RIA Annual Conference. It will be interesting to hear the views of both the Government and Opposition on rail issues, in what are clearly tumultuous political and economic times.

“It’s really important that rail suppliers put their own views and questions to senior politicians, at an important time for rail, with GBR delayed and tough decisions being taken on public spending. If rail businesses and organisations haven’t yet booked their tickets, now is the time to reserve your place!”
