Silverlink: Compensation

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what compensation was made available to season ticket holders as a result of the October/November 2007 strike action that affected Silverlink services. (188012)

As the strike days were under the old Silverlink franchise, the entitlement to compensation for season ticket holders was determined by the Silverlink Passenger’s Charter. This did not contain any obligation on Silverlink to provide compensation under these circumstances. Any compensation provided by Silverlink would have been at its own discretion and not a matter for the Department.
