The members of the Transport Committee, which will serve under chairwoman Lillian Greenwood, have been announced.

The select committee will comprise of a mixture of Labour, Conservative, SNP and DUP politicians.

The members are:

  • Ronnie Cowan (Scottish National Party) – Inverclyde
  • Steve Double (Conservative) – St Austen and Newquay
  • Paul Girvan (Democratic Unionist Party) – South Antrim
  • Huw Merriman (Conservative) – Bexhill and Battle
  • Luke Pollard (Labour) – Plymouth, Sutton and Devenport
  • Laura Smith (Labour) – Manchester Metropolitan
  • Iain Stewart (Conservative) – Milton Keynes South
  • Graham Stringer (Labour) – Blackley and Broughton
  • Martin Vickers (Conservative) – Cleethorpes
  • Daniel Zeichner (Labour) - Cambridge

At the time of her election to the role in July, Greenwood said: "The DfT needs effective and fair-handed scrutiny, and I believe I have the aptitude and experience to provide it.

“This will be particularly important in the months and years ahead. Decisions on Heathrow, HS3 and Crossrail 2 are now seriously overdue. Cross-border issues in the devolved nations remain unresolved.

"There are also serious doubts over the ability of Highways England and Network Rail to deliver road and rail investment schemes, and there is already pressure from the Treasury to rein back on existing commitments."
