Network Rail's network licence places an obligation on it to "publish or procure the publication of a national timetable of railway passenger services".

Network Rail currently discharges this obligation by producing a national rail timetable in A5 format.

Any decision to change the content, publication and distribution of the national rail timetable is the responsibility of Network Rail.

The hon. Member should contact Network Rail's chief executive at the following address for an answer to her question:
