Ministerial Advisory Group "Phase Two Report on Transport" (July 2009)
The future of SWWITCH and the other Regional Transport Consortiums in Wales was called into question by the Ministerial Advisory Group Report of July 2009. This Group, appointed by and reporting to the Deputy First Minister and Transport Minister Ieuan Wyn Jones stated that "The organisational arrangements for transport are unnecessarily complicated and the regional transport consortia represent an unnecessary tier in the structure." (Report summary).(http://wales.gov.uk/docs/det/publications/090715ministerialadvisorygroupphase2reportontransport.pdf). The report was not accepted initially but operational funding was withdrawn from the regional transport consortiums effective April 2014. All public transport functions reverted to the county authorities.
