First Capital Connect: Opening Hours

Volume 487: debated on Monday 9 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make it his policy to oppose the application by First Capital Connect to reduce the opening hours of the ticket offices it operates; and if he will make a statement. (254713)

First Capital Connect has submitted their proposals under the procedures of the Ticketing and Settlement Agreement, which is the approved industry process for such matters.

First Capital Connect’s proposals are currently under consultation. It would, therefore, be inappropriate to make any comment on them at present which may fetter the discretion of the Secretary of State if the proposals are referred by the operator for arbitration.
