Railways: Stansted Airport

Volume 476: debated on Tuesday 20 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if officials in her Department will meet representatives of Arriva Trains Cross Country in advance of decisions related to the December 2008 timetable change to discuss the provision of earlier weekday and weekend services between Peterborough and Stansted Airport. (206028)

There are currently no plans to meet representatives of Arriva Cross Country Trains Ltd. to discuss the provision of earlier services between Peterborough and Stansted airport.

Provided Arriva Cross Country meets the minimum specification for this route, as set out in its franchise agreement, any decision on operating additional services is one for Arriva to take. Such decisions would be made on a commercial basis to meet passenger demand.
