Railways: Mobile Phones

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

The Department for Transport does not micro-manage train franchises. The use of mobile phones on trains is a matter for the individual train operating companies, some of whom have placed restrictions on use by designating ‘quiet coaches'.
