Does the right hon. Lady agree that the Department for Transport needs to update its national rail travel overview survey report, on which so much of its planning is dependent? It has not been updated since 2010. I received a written answer that said the Government are

Does the right hon. Lady think that that needs to be done as a matter of urgency, so that the survey reflects the exact points she is making?
