My right hon. Friend and I have regular discussions with ministerial colleagues about matters affecting transport in Wales. I understand that the Strategic Rail Authority has written to stakeholders, including hon. Members representing north Wales constituencies, to consult them about future service levels, particularly beyond 2008, when the physical infrastructure works on the West Coast Main Line will be complete. Various options for improving the frequency of services, and types of rolling stock are being considered.
