Railways: Standards

Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will publish statistics showing the number of delay minutes on the railways in each year since 1997, broken down by cause of delay. (269057)

The Department for Transport does not hold information specifically about delay minutes on the railways broken down by cause of delay.

Data on rail performance, including on delay minutes, are published by the Office of Rail Regulation. For recent annual assessments of Network Rail and whole-industry performance, the hon. Member may wish to consult the Office of Rail Regulation’s website at:
