Rail Supply Group and others have responded to the launch of this paper:-

Gordon Wakeford, Industry Chair of the Rail Supply Group, said: “RSG supports the Government in its aim to develop a comprehensive industrial strategy for the UK. We will work with the Government on this, to strengthen the capability and competitiveness of the UK rail supply chain to grow business at home and abroad. If we are clever with our approach, it’s not just the current UK rail industry that will benefit from increasing investment in the railway, jobs and opportunities can be cascaded across the entire country.”
