To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) what discussions he has had with (a) train operating companies and (b) Network Rail on the provision of mobile network coverage for consumers on UK rail routes; and if he will make a statement; (89270)

(2) what discussions he has had with (a) London and Continental Railways and (b) Cross London Rail Links Ltd. on the provision of mobile network coverage for business and consumers on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and Cross Rail, including tunnelled routes; and if he will make a statement.

The subject is raised from time to time in the course of meetings but the Department's view is that providing mobile network coverage is a matter for Network Rail and train operators.
