Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to open discussions with United Kingdom rail freight representatives to launch services similar to Direct Rail Services' Grangemouth to Inverness intermodal freight line. [HL340]

The Government have no such plans: the launch of rail freight services is a commercial matter for the companies concerned and their customers.
