To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the number of British Railways Board and subsidiary personnel currently employed on time-tabling duties and the publication of the Great Britain timetable.

This is a matter for the BR board. From next year, responsibility for planning and producing the working timetable for the railway will pass to Railtrack. We expect that the private sector will see opportunities to publish a national passenger timetable commercially, but Railtrack will be placed under an obligation to secure its publication if others do not.
