Increasing Choice for Rail Passengers (11 Jul 2018)

Bill Grant: ...time-limited monopolies granted by the Government. It is easy to see how this system limits competition, especially in Scotland, where the overwhelming majority of services are provided by one operator, Abellio ScotRail, which has a Dutch parent company. Abellio took over the ScotRail franchise in 2015, but questions already have to be asked about its performance. We could in parallel ask...

Neil Findlay: ...asked for minutes, agendas and briefings for meetings between John Swinney and senior financiers, between Derek Mackay and senior officials at the Scottish Futures Trust, between Humza Yousaf and ScotRail, between Nicola Sturgeon and newspaper editors, and between Nicola Sturgeon and Charlotte Street Partners, but the response is: no minutes, no agenda and no briefing.

Scottish Parliament: International Women in Engineering Day (19 Jun 2018)

Sandra White: ...this excellent debate. I will concentrate on two of the aspects that are referred to in the motion: positive action measures and industry outreach. On the latter point, next week I will meet ScotRail, which is actively recruiting women for apprenticeships in engineering. I thank ScotRail for setting that example. However, the biggest example that I will mention is a fantastic project in my...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Peter Grant: any employment at all thinking that it could be remotely acceptable to assume that somebody was more likely to be dodging their fare just because of the colour of their skin. Today I saw a couple of tweets from ScotRail, the main rail service provider in Scotland. Somebody had tweeted ScotRail to express concerns about the safety of the train on which he was travelling, because he had...

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh City Bypass (A720) (31 May 2018)

Colin Beattie: ...and would threaten the already endangered green belt in Midlothian. As we look into making any of the changes that might be required, it is important that we consult different agencies, including Lothian Buses, ScotRail and Borders Buses, as well as our constituents who are most affected by the current issues with the bypass. I am pleased that the Government has announced that a flyover is...

Scottish Parliament: Ferry Services (Northern Isles) (24 May 2018)

Humza Yousaf: ...’s future approach to public sector ownership and control of key transport services, including building the case for a Teckal-compliant direct award to an in-house operator, is reflected in our commitment to enable a public sector operator to bid for the next ScotRail contract. My statement today ensures the continued protection and delivery of vital lifeline ferry services to the...

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Iain Stewart: ...running services on large parts of the line—at the southern end of the line, Hull Trains and Grand Central offer alternatives to the Virgin Trains, and further north there is TransPennine Express and ScotRail, meaning that there is a discretionary element to which service passengers use—and, because of the long-distance nature of the network, passengers can choose non-rail...

Scottish Parliament: Rail Services (East Lothian) (17 May 2018)

Iain Gray: The trouble with that answer is that, at a public meeting in Prestonpans a couple of weeks ago, the ScotRail Alliance was clear that any plans that it has to increase capacity on either the North Berwick line or the east coast main line to Dunbar, for years to come, will be designed to alleviate current problems. They take no account of the projected population increase in the county. Since...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Martin Whitfield: The Secretary of State mentioned that independent members “will ensure the interests of other operators on the route are taken into account.” Will this include First ScotRail, which operates the local service—it is itself operating at capacity and facing its own crises—on the east coast main line in my constituency of East Lothian?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish National Investment Bank (8 May 2018)

Keith Brown: ...;20 billion was contingent upon—this is a big if—Labour winning the next election and Jeremy Corbyn finding £200 billion to put into the economy. We have heard it before. We should not have had to reissue the tender for the ScotRail contract because Labour was going to win in 2015 and that was going to obviate any need for it. I am not sure that we can have policy waiting...

Scottish Parliament: Direct Rail Services (Ayrshire and Edinburgh) (22 Mar 2018)

Humza Yousaf: currently available between Ayr and Edinburgh, which offers five services per day. The introduction of an additional direct service between Ayrshire and Edinburgh has been investigated by ScotRail, but it was not considered feasible to operate a through service between Kilmarnock and Edinburgh because of the detrimental impact that that would have on other services.
