Railways: Network Rail

Volume 711: debated on Monday 22 June 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to discuss re-opening old railway lines with Network Rail and the train operating companies. [HL4379]

The Government are prepared to discuss reopening of a specific railway line where a local authority or passenger transport executive or region considers that this might be the best way of addressing local or regional issues. We have no plans to discuss with Network Rail or train operators the subject of reopening of lines generally.
