    Introduction to 'Air Transport and Infrastructure '

    1st November 2003

    In D. Helm and D. Holt (eds.), 'Air Transport and Infrastructure: The Challenges Ahead', published November 2003 by Oxera, pp. 1-4. In committing itself to providing a 30-year framework for air transport policy, the government recognised that the existing approach of ad hoc interventions, delayed decisions and the consequent congestion could not be allowed to continue indefinitely. A ten-year transport strategy had been set out for the railways (DETR, 2000); a new energy policy was eventually...

    DTI Transport Committee Inquiry into The Future of the Railways

    10th September 2003

    The government set out a new direction for transport policy in its integrated transport strategy White Paper, 'A New Deal for Transport: Better for Everyone', published in July 1998. This was followed by the 'Ten Year Plan'. A new era for the railways expansion was envisaged, which would be justified on economic and environmental grounds. Road building was severely curtailed, and a policy in roads of 'predict and provide' abandoned.

    Whither the Railways?

    21st May 2001

    A Comment on "Phoenix from the Ashes" by Chris Green, for Institute of Economic Affairs. The failure to deliver the performance on the railways which its customers demand has led to a host of proposals for reform. These are often self-interested, and range from the re-nationalisation and re-monopolisation of the industry, through to more evolutionary measures, designed to fine-tune the structure put in place at privatisation.

    A Critique of Rail Regulation

    17th October 2000

    Beesley Lecture, Institute of Economic Affairs, London, October 17th 2000. Very few privatisations have been free of teething problems, and all new regulatory bodies have faced criticisms, made mistakes, and had to improvise and adapt with experience. Perfect models and perfect processes are matters of academic debate; practical experience is bound to be less satisfactory. Rail privatisation and regulation, however, stands out from the pack: it has been much more controversial, and its critics...
