Railways: Hastings

Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to change (a) the timetabling and (b) the frequency of train services along the Hastings to Charing Cross line; and if he will make a statement. (134785)

The franchise agreement with London and South Eastern Railway, the train operator for Kent services, requires the provision of services on the Hastings to Charing Cross route with characteristics similar to those that exist today. The detail of the timetable necessary to fulfil that contractual obligation is a matter for the train operator to agree with Network Rail.
