East Coast Main Line Investment — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Alan Brown: ...North clearly highlighted some of the issues affecting the east coast main line. As to punctuality, I noted the figure of 80%, against an 86% average in England and Wales. It is worth mentioning that the ScotRail franchise in Scotland operates at nearly 90% punctuality, and even that gets quite a bit of criticism, which shows what the level of performance on the east coast main line really...

Scottish Parliament: Suicide Prevention (12 Sep 2018)

Clare Haughey: ...learning from each suicide and improving support for those bereaved.

The conversation café is an informal means by which staff of those organisations can engage with...

Scottish Parliament: Overcrowding on Trains (Edinburgh to Dunblane) (6 Sep 2018)

Michael Matheson: ...year. To support that major infrastructure investment, around £370 million of Scottish Government funding is being provided to deliver a fleet of 70 new Hitachi class 385 trains, which Abellio ScotRail will lease during this franchise term. The plan is for ScotRail to introduce greater capacity on services from Dunblane to Edinburgh and Glasgow from December 2018, with further...

We will take forward plans to enable a public sector bid for the next ScotRail franchise. Having doubled our investment in active travel last year, I can confirm that we will continue that level of investment in the year...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2018-19 (4 Sep 2018)

Colin Smyth: Whenever I challenge the Scottish Government—including Mr Yousaf—to back public ownership of our railways, it refuses to back that plan. It says that it supports a public-sector bid for the ScotRail franchise and the First Minister repeated that pledge today in her statement. That would not be full public ownership, but it would be a start. Why do the First Minister and the...

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...

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)

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...
