asked the Secretary of State for Transport what information and statistics he collects from public transport operators as to the incidence of assaults on members of their staff in the course of their duty and on any subsequent criminal proceedings taken against the alleged assailants.

The Bus and Coach Council keeps records relating to bus operators outside London and London Regional Transport does the same for its operations, and have made them available to my Department. The British Railways Board provides me with information on the number of assaults on its employees and individual cases on request.
