To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what plans he has to review the regulations governing rail fares and ticketing.
Answer (Andrew Jones)
The Williams Review is considering how to enable a railway that is able to offer good value fares for passengers, while keeping costs down for taxpayers. The Rail Delivery Group recently published its Easier Fares for All proposals which are a welcome contribution to the Review. The Department is committed to work with the industry to consider how to refresh and update regulations to reflect changing travel patterns, and to understand how their proposals might work and be tested in the real world.
