My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I have regular meetings with Welsh Assembly Government and ministerial colleagues to discuss matters relating to Wales, including transport issues.
I would like to pay tribute to the work of the hon. Gentleman in his campaigning to raise the profile of this proposed rail service. There is a strong demand for increased rail services in Wales, and a further rail service to London would be most welcome not only to rail users but also local businesses, by encouraging even more visitors to Wales.
