Railways: Rolling Stock

Volume 711: debated on Monday 1 June 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the recent passenger focus survey about railway passenger rolling stock, which found the Pendolino trains to be the least satisfactory. [HL3900]

Passenger Focus' survey was commissioned specifically to gauge passenger views of existing inter-city rolling stock and to see what lessons could be learnt from them in designing the next generation of long distance trains. We are working closely with Passenger Focus to ensure that the results of the survey are taken fully into account as part of the development process for the new Inter City Express (Super Express) train.
