Mr Jones, who will appear via video link, will speak as part of ‘the big picture’, the first session of the conference on Wednesday 18 November.
The Conservative MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough was appointed parliamentary under secretary of state at the DfT, with responsibility for road safety, in May 2015 following the General Election.
Elected in 2010, he has been a Parliamentary Private Secretary on the health, business and transport teams.
He has also chaired the Northern Electrification Taskforce which provided the Secretary of State for Transport with advice on the next steps for electrification of railways in the North of England.
