I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 27 January 2010, Official Report, columns 880-82W, showing the number of trains cancelled and the number of trains arriving late at destination.

Data on the number of trains which may have suffered a delay en route as opposed to arriving late at destination, are not held by the Department for Transport.

Data are held recording the number of cancellations in peak hours for London and South East operators, and are given in the following table. The remaining data requested are not held by the Department.
