To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether the Government plans to publish a response to the Peninsula Rail Task Force rail improvement plan submitted in 2016.
Answer (Paul Maynard)
The Government does not propose to publish a formal response to the Peninsula Rail Task Force (PRTF) report at the present time as we continue to engage with the PRTF and other interested parties as the planning for Network Rail’s work programme for the period starting in April 2019 and the development of the specifications for the future Great Western and Cross Country franchises unfold.
