Volume 686: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport on 2 November (HC Deb, 567W) on train services on the upgraded west coast main line, and further to the Written Answer by the Lord Davies of Oldham on 26 October (WA 259), why they are not able to provide the information requested by the Lord Berkeley in his Question for Written Answer HL 7734.[HL8134]

The Department for Transport does not receive information about the operation of individual trains on specific days. Data of this type are not required by the department to fulfil its responsibilities.

The day-to-day operation of train services, and associated record-keeping, is the responsibility of train operators. Network Rail as the operator of the rail network also holds information on train operations.
