  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: East Midlands Rail Franchise 30 Mar 2017

    What progress is being made on awarding the east midlands rail franchise.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: East Midlands Rail Franchise 30 Mar 2017

    I welcome that answer. In the context of my hon. Friend’s work on the franchise, can he reassure me and my constituents that when the new franchise is awarded we will see new, modern rolling stock capable of operating on diesel and electric lines on that route, as well as later services and Sunday services operating on the popular local Ivanhoe line?
  • Magnox: Early Contract Terminations 27 Mar 2017

    I welcome the characteristic candour and openness with which the Secretary of State has approached the issue. Will he reassure me and the House that the scope of the inquiry will look not only at the NDA, but—as I think he just alluded to—at the role, if any, of UK Government Departments and the Scottish Government in the process?
