House of Rail urges action on the Commission

Members of the House of Rail held their 4th General Assembly meeting in London on Monday 20 April 2009.

For its future action programme, the House of Rail agreed that, in response to the current economic crisis, and on the understanding that there would be no EC support available to the industry, the Commission must facilitate industry to help itself grow market share, increase competitiveness and take much stronger action to ensure no unfair state aids to or price dumping by incumbents.

HoR members continue its strong support for the European Commission’s rail freight liberalisation programme, through the draft Regulation for the creation of a European network for competitive rail freight, and urging it to proceed with all speed with legal action against member states who have not implemented the First Railway Package, as well as moving forward on the Recast of the FRP.
